Not deep enough. With 31's maybe, but 33"+ 4:88 is the way to go. BTW install a truss for that D35 to keep the axle tubes from moving around. They bend and that is the beginning of the end for it. My first D35 was not trussed and after a couple of years of moderate wheeling the tubes started to weep gear oil. Next thing I knew the carrier bearings started to whine. Took it apart and found the drive gears in the locker almost eaten up and the carrier bearing races were worn as if the axle was at an angle(which it was). Anywho, rebuilt housing, tacked the tubes to the straightened tubes and installed a truss. Ran great for several years of moderate to hard wheeling until I caved in and upgraded the rear to a 8.25. Just my .02.
