NP 231 or D-300 fo \'95 YJ

I'm in the early stages of a 350/th350 swap into a '95 YJ and I'm considering getting rid of the NP231 in favor of a D300. What would you recommend. I've got the engine and transmission, still need to rebuild the engine. Transmission is good to go. I'm planning on going w/ d44's front and rear.

Since you are changing front diffs the choice is a no brainer, gear driven versus chain driven, D300, you won't even have to flip it. Put a Tera Low in it while you're at it.

go with the Dana. No chain stretch to worry about and you dont need to spend extra money to get a Slip Yoke eliminator

Ummmm.....sounds like I put an idea in your head! Now you know why this sounds like a good idea....in fact, all my ideas are good....except that broken driveshaft yoke one....and maybe that wheel falling off thing....
Oh ya, since I will be the poor slob helping on this glorious adventure, let me know what you decide. I may decide to change your mind again! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Thanks for all your input. I kinda liked your idea when you broke your yoke, at least you were heading in the right direction (sorta). I’m pretty sure I’ll go w/ a d300. Gear driven, drops on the “right” side, availability and cost etc…
Thanks again….
I’ll keep you all posted on how it goes (very slowly for now).
