What is a Dana 35 good for?

I have a disc brake Dana 35 sitting around with munched gears. Is it good for anything? Paperweight? base for a coffee table?

If its out of a Jeep it will be a rear diff. Being a disc brake setup it may be a super 35. You might get the BOM# off the housing and I can tell you exactly what it is and what it came out of. It just might be worth something to somebody.

If it's a Jeep rear axle, it won't be worth a ton to build it up, as anyone wanting to install it would likely upgrade to a larger axle once their old one comes out. On the other hand, it can be useful to someone salvaging a rear end. 35 axles are weak links and a lot of folks will buy them just for spares - and if I remember right, right and left are different. It's not junk so don't toss it, but it's not a heavy hitter, either.

In the Jeep world is called a Turdy 5.
Whats it good for? It holds the frame off the ground until you can get a 8.8 exploder rear under it.

Disc brakes and 3.73 gears are something that many people are looking for. Too bad it's such a small rear end. Have you put it on craigslist or tried to sell it? You might be surprised at what you could get for it. Someone might pay $150 for it. That's probably more than you can get for scrap.

Nevermind, I forgot about the munched gears. Too bad about the disc brakes though.

I get quite a few calls from people that have managed to bend the housing and not break any internals. They're just looking for a good housing and would pay 250 or so just for the housing. It might be worth listing it as is and see what happens.
