a D35 as in a Jeep rear axle? Or as in the IFS axle in RBVs?

Both are junk imo, but I'm pretty hard on stuff, The IFS one seems alright, i never broke mine. Depends how hard you plan on wheeling honesty.. Every now and then on moderate trails It'll probably hold up.. The CV shafts on the other hand, with a locker, not so much luck. I broke 7? 8? At that point you lose track lol

If it's not locked and you're not running more than 33s, you should be fine with the stock front diff. If you get a lot of wheel speed, followed by sudden stoppage you can break a CV joint but that's probably it. The CV joints will break long before the diff. In fact I don't think I can ever recall seeing a broken IFS d35, just broken CV joints.

Don't bother with upgraded CV shafts, i found some badass ones, fixed on inner and outer joints with a slip yoke in the middle of the shaft.. $1,800 each. hah

Get some from an auto parts store with a lifetime warranty.
