Ok you are running a 4 cylinder so I wouldn't worry about breaking anything I run a 95 mpi 4 cylinder that has more power then yours with the stock 30/35 wrangler axles and I wheel the shit out of it I beat it to death and I haven't broken a thing
And u want to go to 35s that is gonna kill your motor the 33s r really to big for the gears you most likely have and yes the 20 has weak axle tubes weld then and don't beat on it too bad and u won't bend it a set of one piece axles for 200 bucks is a deal throw those in and call it good do the knuckle swap inthe front for disc brakes and run the 33s
I would do that until you decide to upgrade your motor
And even then the d30 can hold upto alot of abuse my dad ran a 30 up front with a lunchbox locker for probably 10 years with a 360 for a motor on a 5000 pound jeep and didn't break it till he had It standing on one wheel and even then he broke the carrier
So basically don't be afraid of the stock axles
