ok, i got a question, on my girlfriends 86 grand wagoneer ive been doing tons of work to it, 6" lift, 35's be here in a few weeks, transmission, t-case, etc, etc...
I decided i was going to use the t176/dana 300 out of a 81 cj5 along with the 44's that i had out of my 78 j-10 w/ 4.10's, well it all went in fine and dandy until i went to put the crossmember in and seen that a t176 out of a cj is way too short, so i got on the horn and called around to find out what i needed to do, jw auto wreckers out in cali said ya they have my adapter and longer input shaft then they called back and said no we just have the adapter, so thats on its way to my house now, now the big problem im having is, where in the friekin heck do i get a longer input shaft that will work in my t176???? ive called several jeep places and seen that the t177 input shaft is considerably longer but another company in houston said i would have to change the cluster gear too (an extra 200 bucks) i cant afford that, ive got enough to buy the t177 input and thats about it, but i cant get a straight answer from anybody if it will work or not! please help me guys!
