Has anyone broken their Superior Super 35 kit?

The title says it all. I would like to hear both first hand experiences and second hand experiences, if there are no first hand ones, with how they broke. Gearing, tire size etc would be helpful. Thanks.

Everything breaks. Don't waste your money on a Dana 35.

In this section, anyone who had a Dana 35 no longer owns it, and more than likely never spent money upgrading it. Check here /forum/67-jeep-non-hardcore/ to get more responses.

I destroyed the detroit locker and the splines on one axle where grinded down all in one moment.

Yeas, It was the full detroit duper35 kit. 36" TSL swampers, 4.56 gears, 4:1 teralow, stock 4.0, AX15 trans.

The only time anyone says anything good about a d35 is when they are trying to sell one or upgraded parts for one!

Go swap in a 8.8

8.8 swap is cheaper and easier to find parts for. Every explorer made has one, and the parts interchange.

Picking a fight ain't gonna get your question answered.

For future reference, don't post in hard core unless it's HARDCORE!

Search. I know this has been answered.

As mentioned above, a better idea is probably an 8.8 swap.

I ran 37's on a 35 with a detroit... Not a good idea. The detroit didn't think so either.

What tire size are you looking for, where do you wheel? motor, trans, gears?

You'll find that the questions you have, have been answered. Search. It will save you time waiting for responses and from being flamed.

Now, go SEARCH!

X2 But I changed the specs to match my Jeep. I didn't bother fixing it I parted it out and bought a D44.

yep, im very uneducated. You dont deal with this forum because you dont have anything worthwhile to contribute. Go back to jeepforum where the window lickers are and ask your question.

why would you think a D35 with a super35 kit is "hardcore"? Seriously, why did you post your retarded question in that section.

8.8's suck ass. They are c clip. They have strait non preloaded bearings on the ends that like to wear out the axle and bleed fluid everywhere. The only fix is new axle, bearings and seal or some janky fix a seal kit thing that doesn't work. Go scout 44's or nothing. My TJ 44 has never given me a lick after 12 years of beat down with 4.56's and an ARB. I sold it for a grand when I went ton's.

I have broken my 44. 3 R&P's, one bent housing, a stock carrier, 3 twisted shafts, a broken arb cross shaft and all upper brackets. What do I win?

The only problem with the c-clip is if you have drum brakes the axle can slide out if it brakes. If you have disc, not so much. The bearing thing on the other hand is bad news, tapered roller bearings are superior. But if you do run an 8.8 as lots of people do, weld the tubes. I saw a guy rotate his 8.8 center section just last weekend.

I have been running a super 35 kit w/ an ARB in my TJ for about six years now on 33" toyos. You just have to realize it is still a glorified dana 35 and it is not "If it will break..Its when it will break". I have had good luck with it because I baby it quit a bit.

A refurbished Dana 35 with a super 35 kit, and gearing of choice. Oh, disk brake kit also.

As mentioned before disk 8.8's don't have to worry about a broken axle wobbling out. And I'm running an 8.8, with 37" tires, so far I've managed to break a driveshaft. How hard is it to find an 8.8 axle in a junkyard when every solid axle explorer has one? If the bearings do wear out, which I've never heard of, you can get new shafts for $20 big whoop. How many vehicles have a d44? And its not nice to sell junk to mentally disabled people for $1000.

What happens when a d44 breaks? Does the magical non 8.8 fairy dust keep the axle from walking out?
