No sir. Not me. Must have been another person with the same idea.

Jerry Bransford This website shows tons of broken Dana 35 axle shafts... too many people don't know any better than to install lockers and/or big tires onto their Dana 35.

So you do not end up like this poor guy. Took this pic during the last Jeep Jamboree I attended. I'd much rather spend a couple grand on a stronger rear axle than deal with this hassle.

GoldenSahara00 D35 can handle 35s with the super kit as mentioned. Without the upgraded shafts, it's risky though. I met a guy at Rausch this summer who had a locked 35 w/ 33s and he wheeled harder than I did and ran all the black trails etc. Hard on the throttle and he said he has done it for years... Some d35s seem to grenade or blow a shaft very easily, while some seem to somehow survive the odds. I wouldn't risk it long term, and if you are going with an expensive locker and install, I would go with the whole Super35 kit.
