Torsen Dana 35

i have been looking for a L/s for the Dana 35 in my truck for a while now and after talking with several companys i got this back from torsen.

"We are currently working on a Torsen differential for the Dana 35 unit. We do offer an 8.8 rear differential currently through the aftermarket. Unfortunately, we do not have any distributors in Washington State but you can go to our website and click on the distributors link for contact information.



Thanks for the questions and interest in Torsen!"

so if you want to see a good L/S for the front of your truck shoot torsen an email showing your intrest! send to [email protected]

DesertSpive over on ORR has 1 of 2 experimental torsens for our d35. At least I think it's 1 of 2.

Dana 35 = front diff.

It'll probably be pretty pricey... If I remember right, the rear torsen unit is like $400!

i e mailed torsen and they said summer . I'm totaly into it. It sounds like its probably a great option for me since i'm a moderate offroader. i also have heard locking the front can lead to damage if you have a heavy foot. maybe less power transfer will prevent any possible damage.

Now if only i had a torsen outback instead of the trac-lock!
