super 35 kit and 35's
 
i have a 2006 jeep wrangler tj x-model...i have the dana 35 rear axle in the back...i know that the stock rear dana 35 axle will not be enough to handle 35 inch tires without breaking...i have heard of axleshafts breaking with 35 inch tires on a dana 35 rear axle...so if i upgrade the stock rear axle to the super 35 axle kit will that be enough axle to hold up 35 inch tires without breaking the rear axle (axleshafts)??????

it can handle 35's if you are careful and do moderate wheeling. Though, most will tell you that putting a super 35 kit in, "you can only polish crap so much"

IMO, the money would be better spent saving for a new axle, like a 44, or a 8.8, 9" etc. especially if you plan on having a locker and wheeling it hard.

I agree with TJGreg on this one... If you are going to put the time and money into a Super 35 kit, you would be better off in the long run to save a little and do either a 8.8 rear axle (cheapest) or a Dana 44 or a Ford 9", if you aren't going to go bigger than 35s. If you are planning bigger, it's not much more to go to a Dana 60... Good luck!

ditto on the two responses above. Some use it and don't break it, but it's a weak axle no matter what you do to it.

I've a few buds that run the Super 35 kits and do hard core trails like the Hammers all the time, no breakage.
Part of the D35s problems come from over use of the stupid pedal.
I've seen D60s break at Tellico so any of them can be broken if you try hard enough.
