Well I sold my YJ about six months ago and now I bought a XJ with a bag of goodies.
So here the deal. 94 two door sport, 4.0, D30 front 8.25 rear. Jeep alone costed 1500 with 149,00 on the OD. Previous owner offerd to sell a 6" full traction long arm kit, skid plate and a set of 35" goodyear MTR's for an aditional 2,000. So of course I could not say no.
I have been contemplating on wether or not to build the rig with the current axels and regrear them to 4.56 or if I should just hold off and find a D44 or 8.8 for the rear. I will be putting a selectible locker in the rear more than likely but I am not quite sure of which one.
I know I will need a SYE and a few other odd and ends but overall I am wondering if the axels can hold up to 35's or not.
Any input is greatly appreciated.

I ran a C8.25 (27-spline like yours) in the rear of my rig for years. I ran 31-36" tires. Wheeled it moderately to hard. Powertrax lunchbox locker. Only broke one shaft. That being said, with the price of an XJ dana 44 and Explorer 8.8 so cheap, if you haven't regeared yet, put in an 8.8 or 44. Trust me.
