Need D35 w/4.10 in OK
First of all, my apologies for posting this in a forum other than classifieds, but beleive it'll get better exposure here.
Since it seems to be generally accepted that the D35 is not much good, and more than a few people have swapped them out, is there any chance that someone has a decent D35 with 4.10 gears that they'd be willing to sell.
Salvages around here are awfully proud of theirs, and it pains me to have to pay good money to buy a bad axle.
It's my wife's Wrangler, and was previously wheeled really hard by a guy who didn't care much for maintenance, and I'd really like to get it sorted for her.
I can get a Ford 8.8 relatively cheaply, but it's a 3.73 and that would mean I'd have to regear it, which puts us back up there with cost.
(Or I could try and find a 3.73 D30 and see how the 4-banger likes pushing the 32's with those gears.)
