What am I forgetting..
I picked up a D300 about a month ago and have been wanting to put it in my YJ.

There's a D44 for sale in our club.. and depending if the price is right.. I'd be up for a purchase..

So here's what I've got so far.

D300.. its good.. but needs shifters.

D44.. has 4.10s to match my rear.

So if I drop this behind my AX15.
It bolts up, and I need new driveshafts.
Then I drop in the front 44, and I will prolly need bolt pattern adapters, and driveshaft.

Exhaust needs re-routing.. A friend says straight back off the 4.2L manifold and keep it high, dump it behind the t-case output shaft.

I'd spring over the front at the same time.. (to match the rear.. get rid of the add-aleaf and hokey lift I've got there now.

Um.. so that involves a drop pitman arm to get rid of the bent draglink.. and new spring perches and u-bolts..
new spring plates too prolly right?

Anyone see any glaring problems? This is all dependant on the cost of the front 44. but it'd be cool to finally have manual hubs and... well.. all the other cool stuff.. like no slipyolk.

That's one of the questions I asked the guy selling it :p

I'm looking for a passangers side drop. I know it's more long term work.. but I don't really feel like flipping the 300.
Um.. ya, I told you that on MSN..

except a D300 has a fixed yolk output on the rear... so no SYE..
I've already got the rear sprung over.. as per my post, and the front has an equivelant lift.. so no new breaklines, shocks, or driveshaft. :-/

Draglink is a bit hokey right now, but a drop pitman arm wil lfix that.
