driver drop transfer case

so i am building my franken jeep which will be a trail. minimal street and dirt drag jeep

where im from dirt drags are very popular

so i stumbled across a pair of axles for cheep and they are a ford 9 inch and dana 44 driver drop for 200 bucks in good usable shape

i was planning on using my good dana 300 and adapting it to the th350
with an adapter input shaft and using a th350 to np208 and drilling out one hole or enlongating one

okay no big deal welll yea the front diff is driver drop so now im thinking about making the dana 300 a driver drop transfercase but i dont know if this adapter will still work whats a common strong driver drop transfer case or in anyone can shed some light on doing the dana 300 flip

If its not a high pinion, or if its from a 78/79 1/2 ton Ford, would just look for a psd.

The 78/79 have a weaker tube design with the radius arm mount cast into the tube. It can't be removed.

Look into using the Dana 300 as a drivers drop. I haven't done this, but have heard it talked about. The shift needs to be by cable.
