There is also a 2.46 gear set for the D20 if you have a little time and $100

Have finally completed the Dana 300 install. I am working on the full write up and compiling pictures. Sorry it took months to get this started but, have been a little tied up at work.

Ok. So I refuse to do the write up until I'm satisfied with the transfercase. However the flip kit spacer that is also your new mount fir the shift rods is aluminum. The case and lid are steel. No matter how many times and what variance I take.... It will not stay sealed for more than two weeks. I believe this is a combination of two things. 1. The expansion rates are different so with time it creates a gap in between the case/spacer/lid. 2. The transfer case is clocked downward. The lid or inspection cover (whatever you like to call it) had a drain hole that per down east offroad's instruction is drilled and tapped. This allows for a new vent. The vent is on the low side. The oil sling is on the low side. I believe the oil is actually clogging the vent tube. I actually get oil out of the vent tube from time to time. So when this happens I think it's pressurizing the case an blowing the seal. I am making a new lid out of .250 2024 aluminum and tapping a new hole in the top of the case. Does this sound reasonable or am I way off base?

North west fab makes a cable set for it.
The previously posted set was home built from midwest control cables and rod ends.

Ive heard great things about this swap, but also that they leak like crazy because they have to be flopped. As i see, your beginning to try and find a solution for this!

A couple of people on here are running 231/300 doublers. Remko on the build section is (only one I can remember) and I plan on it in the next year or so. It is not that the 231 is a weak transfer case ( I mean, they were installed in every tj and most xjs and how many are still running today), it is the 231's alminum case that is prone to breaking or cracking. The 300 is gear driven which makes it stronger than the chain driven 231, but that just means the chain is the weak link.
