D35 Aussie Locker?

I've got a DD XJ with the D35. The search engine is out so has anyone installed an Aussie in their D35? I'm looking for folks I can contact just in case I need some help. Thanks!

The d35 is a notoriously weak axle. Pretty much everyone agrees locking it is bad even for stock tires on pavement. You should be able to find xj 8.25's or d44's that will bolt right in.

If you run into any problems during your Dana 35 install just call us at 585-723-1489, even on weekends. We will do our best to walk you through any issues. Make sure you have the purple Supplemental Installation sheet along with the regular manual supplied with your locker.

We sell a lot of this model, with a lot of happy customers who enjoy safe and reliable wheeling on difficult trails.

Aussielocker has awesome customer service man...as for locking aD35 and it not ALL wheelers are the same with a heavy right foot

The 35 can handle being locked as you KNOW WTF you're doing and understand WHEN the 35 is most likely to explode...

The following are the demise of a locked 35
- Getting into a situation where your rear starts to hop
- heavy skinny pedal on a hill climb and suddenly have traciton
- spinning uphill but sliding backwards? once you grab traction on a high spin you WILL grenade the shaft...
- Pinched traction (getting stuck between obstacles and your wheels/tires are stuck between something like 2 rocks, into a hole, etc...

There are others who have exploded their 35 on the pavement from just being stupid...others may have had a bent housing from wheeling

- Just wheel it and bring spare shafts but you can always go for a set alloy shafts but then you are looking into money well spent on a 44 or bigger

I am thinking of locking my D35, with no-slip, but i have 2,1TD engine, its power cold be compared to 2,5i. Does it put my D35 to danger too?

Will it hold?

I second that. Just don't be stupid, you can make a 35 last if you absolutely have to, but I dont recomend it. The only reason I locked my 35 was I got a hell of a deal on complete axles with them.

I am kinda confused and maybe undecided, I have now a D35cklip, 4,56 in it, and almost complete se of disc brakes ready for it. Is a good investment to buy a no slip for it? Or go rather a 8.8 or a 29-8.85? Sell the turdy and begin from the beginning?

you'll be fine with the 4cyl...I would lock it on 31's with no second thought since you already ahve otehr mods for it...you can't go wrong with a 8.8 or 8.25...but since you won't be running too much wheel soin you'll be fine...

Then don't waste anymore money on the 35. With the money you would use to buy a locker you could put gears in the 8.8.

I saw this message and thought this was wonderful customer service, so I went to your Web site tonight and ordered an Aussie for my D30. Hopefully, I won't have any issues with install, but it is nice to know you guys are there for me, if I have issues.

A buddy of mine just installed his Aussie in his CJ. He said as long as I mark the end caps and bearings, there really isn't anything to the install. I hope he is correct. I'll have to check UPS site to see what the delivery date will be.

It was a pleasure doing business with you!

EDIT: I just checked UPS.com and Tuesday the 19th is the scheduled delivery date.

I have had an Aussie inmy D30 on my CJ7 for quite some time now with no problems. Only thing I break is a hub every now and then, which are cheap and easy to replace. I use the stock ones just for this reason, they break before other thinsg break. My AMC20 was stock and I never had any problems from it. And I wheel pretty hard sometimes. Now I have Yukon axles in my rear and ready to lock it. The Aussie is a great drop in locker, best on the market IMO.
