Rust on Gears

I am rebuilding my dana 300 and when I took it apart it had some water in the transfer case. It has been sitting for 3 years. Question: some of the gears had rust on them not real heavy but beyond superficial. Can I sand blast them clean them up and reuse them or do I replace them.

I'd just wire wheel it, assemble and run it.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

Wheel, Wrench, Repeat.

You could sandblast or better yet, soak them in a covered container in apple cider vinegar. It'll take a day or two but they'll come out looking like new.
