Hey that's a good idea especially for a cj! Thank you. Very excited bringing her home tomorrow!

That sounds like a solid rig! Congrats on the purchase.

The motor and axles alone are worth the 5 grand, the fun factor with that thing is gonna be priceless.

My thoughts exactly I smell a four wheel burn out video in the near future?

Looks like a pretty good deal to me! I would have went $5,000 on it if the engine really is that fresh and they used reasonable parts.

The only thing I see I would change IMMEDIATELY is the front axle.
That D-30 with 5.38:1 and 35" rubber is going to blow the U joints out of that front axle in no time flat!

D-44 with 5.38:1 gears is one thing,
But that little D-30 axle set doesn't stand a chance!

If you want to 'Crawl', that Dana 20 Transfer case isn't the best choice either... That guy must have had stock in the adapter company to use a D-20 behind a TH-350!

REMEMBER,
'Free' internet information is worth EXACTLY what you paid for it!

Your very right I'll be keeping an eye out for a scout 44 for sure. I sure hope there quality parts he bought it from a local machine shop so I would assume so. All the exterior parts look good quality msd and Demon guess I won't know till I get it home. I'm guessing a new adapter would be needed for a d300? Because I actually have a spare.
