5spdftw If you do decide that you want to run 35's or lock it, just pick up a D44 out of any TJ and that sucker will bolt right in. If you can weld and are willing to do some fab work, an 8.8 would be do-able as well.

dklassen I have the D35 in mine. Was talking with Essentially Off Road (who builds some of the most bad ass Jeeps and Bouncers around) about doing a V8 conversion for me. I asked about my axels and they said unless I was going over 33's and planned on doing some pretty hardcore wheeling, doing a little upgrading on my existing axles would be fine. No need for a 44.

flflash D35's get a bum rap there's a lot of them out there that are wheeled on a regular basis.
Due to your 3.73 gears I'm guessing your not running more than a 31 to 33" tire? A D35 will hold up fine with that size tire. Now if your planning on re-gearing, adding a locker, want rear disc or going to a 35 tire a 8.8 or 44 swap is always an option.

Green2000sahara I do would like to lock it. I saw something about a c clip eliminator. And heard that's the week part of the d35. Prob gonna buy a new g2 d44 from quadratec for like 2200.

5spdftw If you are planning to say at or under 33" tires and are not planning on locking it, I see no reason to not keep the D35.

1jeeplvr I built me 35 ,with a Eaton also and have wheeled the crap out of it.So far so good.

Brad48178 I really don't think their worth much. You might be alright with it. Depends on tire size and use. I personally won't put any money into it. I'd look for dana 44 out a TJ/LJ that'll bolt right in.
