The flipped D300 would most likely not work for a ya anyway unless it came out of a 4 banger TJ. The pesky 21 spline output shaft makes it a pain in the rear to bolt anything exotic to the transmission

Civic parts are in. Wish me luck, been driving that damn thing all week waiting for that bearing to seize while my wife drove my truck. She's loving it and says dudes are complimenting her on it constantly..... I never get any damn compliments!

Haha.... only months later. Car is sick man. Wingless GG MR, is just badass. I'm very envious. I just couldn't imagine having enough time in my life to have a Jeep and an EVO. I almost went insane trying to keep my EVO in mint condition.

Got the day off... gonna go out and stare at my Jeep and find some little projects to do. Going to fix my cable on my suck down winch for sure. And probably re-paint my cage.

Yeah, have had some expenses pop up this month. Just being patient... I didn't expect to be ready for it so soon to be honest. I'll have it and my driveshaft by the end of Sept.

I still have the entire length of steel line on mine .

I spooled mine out to far in MOAB, it caught on something and snapped. I need to make sure after I use to it, to only let it out enough to have full travel. It's kind of hard though without getting out and looking at it. I'm also thinking synthetic, but also think I'll have the same issue.
