Dana 300/ Tera low

Does any one know of some good links that show a Tera low installation in a Dana 300? Or any comments on this subject if you have done it.
Thank you!

Re: Dana 300/ Tera low

We did this recently, and I just helped with some small stuff, BUT I know that we did end up having to buy a new (used off a friend) input shaft (it was bad)& a bunch of bearings, they have a overhaul kit to buy with it, but some places like 4wd Hardware do not list it. Also, the new special shift rail shaft they sent us was machined slightly larger in diameter & gave us fits & we had to take the thing apart again & wear it down with emery cloth. Overall, it ended up being more of a PITA than we thought it would be & cost us about another $120 in other parts, BUT - I loved it last weekend on the trail. Would I recommend this? YES - but, it was harder to do & cost more than anticipated (as most CJ projects end up being anyway [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]).
Maybe other people have had better luck, this is just par for the course for me though.

Re: Dana 300/ Tera low

I did the conversion a year and a half ago, it was a piece of cake. Everything went in just fine, I just followed the rebuild instructions in my Chilton's. The hardest part was getting the right amount of case ground away for the gear to fit in, that took about a half hour with a carbide bit and the Dremel. I even need to press only one bearing, the others all came off by tapping on the shaft with the gear against the case. All of the bearings went back on by heating them with a propane torch. All in all, it was a very easy install.
