Super 35 kit for TJ rears ???

Anyone have this kit in their TJ ? Is this just polishing a turd? I may look into this for running 37's. Any ideas? Its for a 6 cyl/auto TJ.
Thanks, Ricky...seeya...

Re: Super 35 kit for TJ rears ???

dont do it.....its a turd.....look into getting a D44 from a TJ or from an 87'-90' XJ/MJ or a ford 8.8........going the 8.8 or XJ' D44 will cost you about $1100 ALL SAID AND DONE....

edit for more info

1. you still have the thin walled d35 tubes bent mine at tellico (youll have to brace the $hit out of it)
2. small R&P
3. if you break a shaft then you have to deal with the c-clip(not fun ask brent and caver about that) and you just cant get a spare shaft (30 spline vs. 27 spline factory) from a j-yard
4. i have heard that the 30 spline detroit locker is subject to break (search JU)
5. and did i say its a turd

Dana 35 axle shaft...not a good day for this driver.

Why do I dislike the D35 so much, you might ask...Well that is your intrepid trail guide under SOMEONE ELSE'S JUNK! "I'll just go easy on the skinny pedal after I lock it..." [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wall.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bs.gif[/img]

well a stock d35 shaft is 27 spline and 1.15" dia..........the super35 shaft is 30 spline and 1.30" dia. same as a stock d44....most people dont break the shafts they break the detroit and bend the axle housing [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lame.jpg[/img]

Now I know for a fact that you broke your Yukon alloy shaft...saw it with my own eyes...even helped try and beat out the little chunk of it that was left in the detroit...

I think that the broken shaft pictured above is an alloy (don't know if it's an Yukon or Superior). And he was NOT being hard on the skinny pedal...but it did make a very pretty POP! sound...Just like your's, we cleaned all the little bits out, stuck the ARB back in, threw in a spare shaft and sent him on his way back to Tennessee (from Central VA).

Note the Billions of $$$'s spent having the coil suspension and the front and rear ARBs installed...but left the D35 in... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wall.gif[/img]

This has been gone over so many times it's not even funny......I think the general consensus is, and I know I feel this way, aslong as you're easy on it, you'll do alright. I feel anything more than 31's is pushing a D35, but it's all about your driving style. If you're light on the skinny pedal, and you don't land on top of you tubes time and time again, it should hold ok. But just "ok". I know 33's and definetly 35's is pushing that axle WAY BEYOND it's intended purpose....and I'm not quite sure what it's intended purpose is since it should of never made it under a Jeep. But hey, they also took a step backward when they went back to round headlights. That could just be me though!

I've personally seen 3 blow up, and I was the one blowing up one of them. I cannot see how they even hold up under light street use. I broke an axle shaft while just sitting in the snow turning a few thousand RPM's to get unstuck. What a waste of steel!
