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.

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.
