Steep hill + Stock Dana 35 + 33 inch tires + Locker =

We knew it would happen sooner or later, time to upgrade!
We had to ski the Jeep out of the woods to a waiting trailer.

Oops. How far did you have to drag it to get it out? At least the snow helped.

If I would have gone yesterday, that would have been me, but the front passenger side would have broke

hi, I have d-35 shafts on hand.

But I think you should turn it into a super 35.

Sounds like exciting fun in the cold.

When I finish my D44 and install it, I'll have a complete Super 35 axle for sale (Detroit Locker, 4.56s). Won't do you much good, however. :miff:

I'll shutup now.

Had to put the tire back on. The skid tire was trying to catch on the ramp and at one point the Jeep was wanting to get tippy... After the tire was on, went on pretty easy.

No not ready to change user name yet, just need to finish my buggy in the shop that will hopefully live up to the name. But until then wheeling the wife’s DD is better than not wheeling.

Thanks to all with parts and help offers. I have a pair of chromoly's on the way should be wheeling by Sunday.
