The AMC 20 won't be an issue unless getting back into the CJ. They are still stronger than a 35 if you replace the 2 piece shafts. The problem with the 35 is weak c-clip shafts, a weak carrier, and wafer thin tubes. There is no hope for it. The front Dana 30 is actually stronger. As long as you don'...
