I'm working on swapping in a dana 300 with a twinstick. I'm using the flipkit and adapter ring (to attach the Dana 300 to the 6 speed tranny in my LJ) and cable shifters from NW Fab. The combo runs aroud 400 bucks. I also bought the LOMAX 4:1 gear set from JB Conversions. These gears are much stronger than the stock Dana gears and obviously have a lower crawl ratio. Just haven't gotten around to putting it on yet. From asking around I hear the week point will be the output shaft housing. the case it's self is cast so it's strong. FYI


Edit: I also recommend the JB Conversions Twin Stick Ball & Spring Kit, it helps prevent the Dana 300 from popping out of gear which I hear is pretty common.

A 300 is a great case and very strong once the rear output is changed out. There are a few on here that give it a bad name for no reason. When you step up to larger tires 37+, the dana 300 becomes a better choice than your chain driven cases.

I like the 300 for its smaller size. Longer rear ds shorter front.... sounds good to me

That is the kit I installed... It's in the jeep and I've been running it for about a year. Next step is to convert it to cable shifting and add a splash guard to the aluminum lid that I milled for it. It pumps oil up the vent tube even when it's low on oil... I get that fixed and it'll be a perfect case.
