    You sir, are badass. I run a D35 on my rig w/42" tires and 8000 hp, c clip axles are the shizzle and made in Chernobyl.
    Awesome! :rockon:

    The reptile reference was toward the fenders on the op's ride, sorry welding joke from the class room. :D

    Yeah, I couldn't by no means compare with that build, I don't think ive ever gotten close to that amount of money, but for what I got and do, this new jeep will work pretty well. appreciate the comment bro.

    Cost him less than you think, he saved and bought pieces as they came available, alot used. Did alot of home work first and built to fit his student budget. All of the labor was 100% donated by all parties, and the XJ was 100% reliable and street driven to every event and ride!

    awesome. yeah so far the tires, rims, and doubler is only thing I got money into plus shafts coming Monday. jeep cost of course but probably stay with that until I get either locker front or manual hubs for the d30.

    Have you ever seen what happens when a c-clip axle breaks? Just saying that if it does on the road you might be replacing more than a rear end.

    nope cant say I have. ive never abused mine enough to brake them. maybe that's the beauty of having 4 kids and limited funds is that it forces me to still have fun and do what I want but be smarter to not brake stuff. Im sure if money wasn't such an issue, I might brake stuff more often but even that gets old on the trail. its more fun to be able to keep going and make it back home everytime. getting stuck however, I've had my share of some baaaaddddd stucks that even dozers could budge me until half of my rear frame was ripped off, he he, that was in raliegh one time and it was pretty bad and ugly but since then I learned to poke with stick first, then go through. im sure weve all learned that lesson.

    Easy on it or not that welded rear WILL bind up on the road, If a shaft breaks on the d35 while your driving that tire, wheel and what ever is left of your axle shaft are coming off. Not very safe for the road

    OHHH, yeah for the road, anyone with welded or locker should be aware of pavement period. neither is good for pavement. I hate pavement. I go off into ditches if I have to to make turns and really wide turns and such in parking lots. people probably think."whats that idiot doing in that big jeep driving like that" lol, im sure they have to since we all look silly when doing those "WIDE" parking turns at the grocery store....and then cops think we're drunk or something so its fun cause it messes with everybody.

    Every time I see black marks off the road and through ditches I now know who has been doing it.

    with all due respect, theres is no way you have that much fun offroad if you have been doing it for that long and NEVER broke an axle....i was always told not to worry about axles on a samurai locked up on 31s and i had alixk 31s and broke an axles almost once a month, im not saying i was easy on it but still

    well, once again my kinda fun is enjoying riding, mud especially, posing on stuff, hill climbs that i can manage without rolling, not much rocks or rocky hills, and i just enjoy being able to most of the time drive back home. now ive broken PLENTY of u-joints, driveshafts, gearbox bolts, and axle joints in front but never exploded a D35 or 8.25 welded or not. however, yes youre right about one thing, ive never done anything stupid or "I Know I shouldn't do that" type of stuff with jeep axles and thats what has kept me in one piece all these years, i believe, and I had a really GOOD teacher from the getgo who taught me about jeeps and what to do and not to do to keep going and make them last. I guess i stuck with his advise pretty good and went from there.

    ohh yeah and to more show off a cherokee D35 listen to this: NO LIE AT ALL>>>>my biggest cherokee was 12"lift on 39.5"Truxs Load Range E stock axles and of course new front xles but original D35 131K mile rear diff Pulled a heavy azz explorer up my steep driveway around a sharp curve at the top and anther 80ft or so with 7" of snow on that driveway holding wide open throttle the whole way with built 4.0L and stock drivetrain and when i say WOT i mean WOT and only broke a right front axle joint on the curve but kept on it in 3wheel drive the rest of the way. my neighbor was out plowing his driveway and he even told me i was crazy but yet the COOLEST thing he's ever seen a cherokee do and yet would be afraid to do that with his V8 Tundra he has sittin there. Thats what I love to do with Jeeps cause the look on peoples faces is priceless and on the trail even more priceless, especially those who bend down to see the diffs first, then look up shaking their head, but then they go, 'wow'.. 'damn' look at that little jeep go. Im sure you know those 39.5 Truxs load range E are HEAVY HEAVY but wouldn't think twice about doing that again on snow of course, probably mud too, but anything that had rocks or bumps and such, wouldn't even try it so it just depends. I WISH I HAD THE VIDEO TO SHOW YOU THIS PULL, YOU WOULD BE LIKE "DAAAIIIIAAAAMMMMNNNN" thats one crazy son of a .......and probably waiting to hear a snap crackel pop.he he
