Good spindles and axle shaft washers are somewhat hard to find for the D35 around here... I have a ton of D28 parts. I bet I have at least four complete sets of shafts and lockouts - I'm never breaking them, though. I think you can get brand new spindles for both but they're very expensive.

My credo
built, not bought
a few years ago (5-6?) I needed a drivers side beam for the ‘93. All I could find was a hybrid ( 28 parts in a 35 beam) and I thought those were the “rare” ones. was able to use my differential and the “new “ beam. still have the 28 diff somewhere

Stopped to check my hitch before getting on the highway yesterday. Snapped this.

Hate how much it looks like a Bronco at times. That cap has to go.

If you got the visor and full length running boards to go with your WHITE grandpa looking topper it would all really click together and complete the look... :icon_thumby:
