Today I fully reassembled and sealed my Dana 300.
Man, that was a costly burnout Yeah, swapping that 302 in was the best mod to do, rather than fixing the tired out inline six

Do you have any lift? You might need a t-case drop kit, leaf spring angle shims, or a cv style driveshaft.

Cut the rusty holes out of the tub where the rear legs of the roll bar bolted in and welded new good metal back in its place. Slowly getting the hang of this MIG welding!
