camarozz Depends on what you want, and the money you want to spend.

Im cheap, and dont want to spend days on replaceing the entire rear, so I would spend a few hundred and replace the axles as needed. But I dont "wheel hard" either, some back roads, and beebopping around.

Another differential question

I know from reading tons of threads that the Dana 35 rear diff is not very strong. My question is this....can you not beef up the 35 with stronger axles and a locker or better gears without swapping out the entire rear for an 8.8 or other rear end? I run 33 x 12.50's with the stock 35, and I don't wheel too hard, just trails and mud. I haven't had any breakage, but I figure it might just be a matter of time.
