  • Dana 300

    Ok, here goes. I'm gonna go ahead a put my CJ project back together. Is there a driver's side drop Dana 300? I have a guy locally has a Dana 44 front and 9"in for sale (cheap) I know that you can bolt a Np-231 up where a 300 used to be. I've done it and it works. But I like the 300 better. And I dont want to spend anymore money than I have too!!! The tranny is a auto, I've gotten tired of the manual tranny. Plus my health aint making it any easier.
    Thanx John

    There is no drivers drive D300, but you can flip them to work on the drivers side. When YJ, TJ, XJ guys run them thats what they do. There are a couple companys that sell flip kits.

    Its not too hard from what I've seen (I'll be doing mine this winter) and you can get the kits for a couple hundred dollars.

      Hey hmr-rsq, I don't know about a driv-side drop, but I know that someone makes a kit for the D-300 to be clocked all the way over, so it is a driver-side drop. I think JP magazine did an article on it. I'll do some checking later, maybe some else knows where to find more info on it. HB

          Thanx!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          I've been outta the loop as far as keeping up with the lastest and greatest. I thought that ya could. Just need some ideas. I did a chevy V8 YJ in the shop a couple of years ago and he bought me motor and T4?? for the swap. And I used his Np231. Not what I would have done, but it worked.

            where you gonna fit the drive shaft? what i'm getting at is you'll need to off-set your motor to the pass side. that may also then screw up the alignment with the rear output to the rear diff depending on how far you have to move the motor.

            might be a little more involved and more money in the long run than you expect. chevy front 44s and 60s are pass drop and easy to find cheap. probably cheaper than using a drivers side drop.

            i'm saying this from guessing, no experiance at it at all.

              In the yokes of course...No! I'm sure that all is

              in line with each other. Even if the rear shaft is off slightly. There's no more difference than when I set a 8.8 in my YJ!!! The 300 comes straight out the back!! Right??
              "FU" now ya gonna make me, go look and see. I looked at clocking kit and it can be done. Guess this gives me an excuse to buy the twin stick setup!!!
              Thanx guys.... I'm done with this rig its going on eBay. Just watched a CJ go for over $10k and not as nice as mine.

                do a google search on Pirate4x4. You can flip a 300 without a kit. You just flip it to the drives side. Its been done more than a few times. You just have to make your own twin sticks or buy a cable twin stick setup. They dont leak out the shift rails, just flipping it either. One of the venders on Pirate is sell a kit with cables and all. But I cant remember with one
