Last month I ordered a Ford 8.8 axle from East Coast Gear Supply. This axle is much more robust than the D35. I passed on changing this in my backyard and instead had Jason at Rock Your 4x4 do the install. He's a member of our club and I'd highly recommend him for Jeep work.
I then ordered a pair of Rusty's 3 inch springs for the front as my old springs were sagging and the 2inch budget boost wasn't giving me enough clearance. The rear netted about 5/8" more lift with the axle change so nothing was changed out back.
