I would have to disagree and say that the dana 35 has held up very well in my truck. The only weakness i have found is the housing itself, getting it plated fixes the weakness i think john at autofab charges like 200 or 250 for the plating and it is well worth it. This is all depending on your application, i can hit high desert speeds and occasionally you'll find me rockcrawling with my jeep buddies. and i always get a laugh pulling people out of the deep sand.
the 35 it will go on is plenty stong,it,s gusseted,boxed and widened with1" rod ends at the pivots.i was looking for someone that had possibly done it at had results.i'll check the ranger website,thanks.
