I read the Dana 300 transfer case profile and it said something about adding oil paddles to the main shaft to prevent oil starvation of the rear bearing. Has anyone done this and could you give me more detailed instructions on how this is done? Thanks ....

Did it say the starvation of the rear bearing is only when flat towing for long distances?

Yes you did. But I don't see why flat towing and regular use would be different? I have never flat towed my Jeep. It would be out of gear? Right?

/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif That's the problem. Nothing below the mainshaft is turning while the Jeep is being towed, and no oil is being taken upstairs to lube the rear output shaft brg. Some forklifts have the same problem if you tow long distances./wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

I never believe any statistics unless I've made 'em up myself.
