Default d35

Are all d35 non c-clip? If not, can I tell without dropping the cover? Are all d35's the same? Meaning you can change from c-clip to non c-clip with a parts swap? I got a d35 with 4;10's, when I opened it I found sand, mud, and rust. It has 2 in brakes{ my other 35 has 2.5 brakes}. I also got a 4;10 ring and pinion for the front, It looks great. How can I tell if its for a hp axel? I got extra axel shafts, brake drums with it. Should I keep it, or return it. It was very good price and I did not have to travel far. Thanks

u must pull the d35 cover to tell a c-clip or not. as i know noother way to tell.
from factory jeep d35's came w/ open diffs, trac-loks and open diff w/ abs.

d-35's can be part swap to meet your needs. u can even put 30spline axle shafts and convert to disk. notworth allthat imo

on the front 4.10 r&p look for make or part # to identify it. ( spicer...ect)

gl w/ that.

i didnt know there was a difference on brake sizes for the d35. i wonder if one size is for c-clip and none c-clip.??

I know that 87-89 are non-c clip. i have heard that the non-c goes on to 92 but I can not verify that.

if you pull the drum off the non c is a flanged axle. it will have 4 bolts holding the axle in the tube. should be an access hole in the axle flange to get at the bolts i would think. unless they expect you to get at the bolts from the side. either way there will be 4 bolts holding the shaft into the housing behind the axle flange. 93 and newer are c clip. 92 and older are flanged. if you had a flanged dana 35 with a super 35 kit(30 spline shafts and locker) and did a little truss work it would be a pretty strong, light weight alxle with great ground clearance. i have run a c clip super 35 for about 6 years with no issues, but the c clips scare me.

most are c-clipped but some are not. Like mentioned above 87-89 aren't and I also know that the WJ (99+ Grands) D35 are non-clipped.
