jasonduke5 they are all over Craigslist in central pa. i would keep and eye on there. i agree with most the people above that if no when my d35 goes i am going to put the money into a d44. that being said tho if money is tight i will put another d35 under it if i have to. What shot on it. the rin and pinion? maybe a bearing. you could probably replace them cheaper or the same price as getiing a junk yard or used axle. if you go that route then you know everything inside of it will be new.

What are they doing to the 8.8? I'm local to the area and priced an 8.8 from them multiple times before deciding to build my own. Couldn't get them to do it under $2000

If it's a Dana 35, don't go with it... a Dana 35 axle is not strong enough to be reliable with a locker. And that Aussie locker, as good as it is when installed in the front axle, is not well behaved when it is in the rear axle.

Your Dana 35 can be rebuilt with all new bearings in any competent 4x4 shop that regears axles for probably $350-400. If it's the ring & pinion gears that are whining, those plus all the bearings can be replaced for $600-700 at the most.

Caution to note that I recommended a 4x4 shop. Few mechanics in a standard garage have much experience with this particular job which means 1) they may not be able to do the job properly and 2) they will probably charge more than a 4x4 shop. Most 4x4 shops do a lot of axle work (regearing, installing lockers, etc.) so this type of job would be nothing unusual for them.

znera143 none of the garages near me will get into just the rear differential they all say they dont have the time or the knowledge to rebuild it. so for me it seems easier to get a used rear axle and replace it myself.

A used what? Whole axle? Why not just fix what is broken? I hope you don't replace your Jeep every time you need an oil change.

frieed If you change the gearing then you have to change the front as well.

jkp 2nd on finding a local axle shop to check it out. Unless it's making really horrible noises, probably a bearing. Assuming you haven't been out beating on it with huge tires...

I work full time, am married with kids and I probably poorer than you! None of us want to spend more than we need to!

Dextreme A whining sound could just be a bearing. Find a local axle shop and have them give you a quote.

The G2 axle alone with shipping was going to be darn near 3500.00 from 4wheeldrive in Raleigh.

Check out www.eastcoastgearsupply.com for the 8.8 stuff.

11-26-2012 10:34 PM
