Re: Swapping d300 into YJ: Better options for axles?
I know people have done it, but it would create alot more work than saveing a couple hundred bucks would warrent. Notice that the shifter for your AX-15 is located more to the passenger side of the vehicle. This means the whole drivetrain is offset to that side. Less room for the shifter on that side. You could move the drivetrain a little to the drivers side, but that would be alot of work. Not saying that it couldn't be done, but there are options that could take alot less work.
Have you considered a F-250/F-350 from the mid 80's as a drivetrain swap. They are plentiful and probably could be found cheap. They will be wider and have 8 bolt hubs. You could send to Mosier for shortening and redrill hubs. Just an idea you might want to consider.
llll '90 YJ, NV4500, XD9000i, 35" MT/R, Snorkle, 4.5" RE lift, Tera Revolvers, etc. etc.
