Super 35 kit?

Any one running the super 35 kit in the d35? I know some will say why dump that kinda money into a weak axle but with the coil conversion under me, until pro-comp comes out with a different design for a bigger axle(D44)in thier brackets I need to do something to get locked.

Re: Super 35 kit?

I put mine in about 2 months ago and works great so far, on and off road.

Re: Super 35 kit?

I know of 2 guys that have installed the Super 35 kit, and then actually went out and used them. Both had good results, with no more than what you could expect from any axle under extreme conditions, and 35" swampers. One guy had a set of driver side bearings freeze up and weld themselves to the axle(opperator error, no doubt), and one guy bent the axle hub on the driver side twice,(once on a sliding impact, once wedged into a V notch). Both have since sold there D35 and only got about $.50 on the dollar for their investment.
If you have to do it, then you have to do it. And It will probably get you by, but its throwing money away, in the long run.
How hard would it be, to adapt another axle to the Pro Comp kit, isnt it just a matter of fabricating new perchs???

Re: Super 35 kit?

It all depends on what you want to do? I have the kit in mine and have had no problems. I wheel in a little snow, mud and rocks, so far no problems. Just depends how "hard" you wheel, keep the hopping down and you should be just fine!!

Re: Super 35 kit?

Another point to remember with the super 35 kit, all that and you still have little drum brakes! That's my main reason for the 8.8" axle swap, my 35's are tough to stop when the drums get wet and I have to rely on only the front discs.
