It's like anything. It is all what you are doing with it. I know guys that have mud trucks with a 10 bolt 12 bolt combos pushing 750 HP and the axles hold up.
They wheel in mud. It doesn't bite like rocks do. I had a YJ with a chevy 400 bored to a 406 and I ran the stock 30/35 axles. That motor had close to 500 HP. Oh.... It had 35" tires on it. Was it smart? Nope. Did I have to baby it? Yup.
I know guys that have broken 14 bolts taking their rig off of the trailer (that's no joke). However, that same person beats the shit out of their rig.
Myself. I have a VERY heavy foot. I am from a small town. We wheeled creek beds and down by the river as well as our share of mud. If you felt yourself slow down you put your foot down to have your tires clean out and you were back at it again.
After spending time in the rocks I do not wheel the same as I did back then. However I have to build things stronger as the tires do not slip and the parts take a much bigger beating than the mud and sand wheeling I did in my youth.
In short.... If you drive like an asshat then 35s are not going to be a good fit for you. If you take it easy or dd it, game on. Afterall... Who doesn't like bigger tires?
