Research again cause the Dana 35 is a TURD! I had a TJ I got it used with only 45,000 miles and I was the second owner and the first did nothing to it (meaning it was just driven regularly) I put a set of 32"x10.5 on it and drove it two days on the street and the spider gears turned to chunky peanut butter! It never even went off the road! I never even put it in 4x4! That was my worst experience but I have had at least 6 35's explode under little pressure
. You can get a good C8.25 for $100-$150 and you can do the same disc brake swap to it and it stock is 100000 times better the the turdy five. But if you still stick with it than do not do a disc brake swap with out up grading the booster and master cylinder also. Good Luck
