97jeep4 I just had a Detroit True trac installed in my D35. So far so good.

While not inexpensive to have installed, a Truetrack is indeed a better solution for a Dana 35 since it's not nearly as likely to bust the axle shafts as a lincoln locker is.

Someone please ask me a question so i can use this analogy ..but wait till my tears from laughter stops so i won't short out my laptop .

Well said.. and I think your location may be fitting.

bajonesy77 As long as its only a temp. fix it should get you back on the road the easiest and fastest but Ive seen several fail on the trail. What made it fail in the first place? just driving or abuse?

Lincoln Lockers...

I just cracked my D35 stock carrier and shattered my spider gears... Thinking I will obtain some new/used spiders and weld the spiders completely to the carrier as my cheapest/quickest/easiest fix. Any other good ideas or tips on this process? Would also like any other tips/ideas for the rear axle while im welding away!
