i was thinking of welding my rear end has anyone dose this and what was the results did you like how did it drive on the road did you break?
i have done it on cars but never a jeep just wondering how bad they act beening so shortHell I'd do it just be sure to be prepared to buy an axle if it fails. But if you weld it it will be like a locker thats engaged 24/7 So have fun in the rain snow and around turns....
8.8 out of a mustang?To explain a little bit. When you lock or weld a rear end it puts a lot more stress on it. The D35 is already a really weak axle. Most people including myself wouldnt even feel safe runing 33's and a open diff on them. When you lock or weld a D35 your setting up for disaster. I'd weld mine while I was prepping for a 8.8 swap for the fun of it and if it blew oh well the 8.8 would be going in. Theyre are super D35 kits from superior that people have had good luck with running up to a 35 inch tire on. But for the most part they are to weak to lock or weld and can hold a 31 inch tire on a open diff safely.
