    Well, you know what they say.... If you have to ask the question, you probably know the answer already.
    But if you're gonna run 37's then you have to regear. The D35 is not worth spending the money on. Even a D44 on 37's would be iffy for serious offroading, but should be ok for the light offroading that you want to do.

    Default Ditto.

    I agree. You'd definitely want to re-gear....and it's not worth throwing the money at the 35....it's that crappy.

    Wait and get a real axle to run 37's...The housing and axle shafts are not strong enough, especially if it's the stock axles...sorry it's your rig but I think you end up bustin stuff all the time...

    To run 37's on a Dana 35 first thing you want to do is call you insurance company and let them know you about to put a grenade in your rear axle. OK seriously now even for street driving 37's are WAY too much tire for the D35 and even too much for the D30. MAX for the D30 is 35's and MAX for the D35 is really 33's although I have seen alot of folks frun 35's on it. Only thing is when you get to 35's on a D35 it's not an if this axle breaks its a When this axle breaks

    Don't do it. Put money into other options. like Dana 44, Ford 8.8, or ford 9", or even bietter a D60

    I snapped my Dana 35 on 33's, just to give you a feeling where we're coming from.

    I snapped my d35 on 35's just doing light wheeling.As a friend of mine has said to me many times,, you can build a d35 as strong as you want,but it's still a d35.
