nv3550 to dana 300

I am putting a nv3550 tranny in my CJ, looking for some advice on clocking it up with a ring or redrill the tranny

It is a direct bolt on but the dana 300 will drag the ground in the stock position

I have also heard that using just a clocking ring, will not allow for enough engagement of the dana 300 onto the rear out put shaft of the nv3550

I dont want to spend $250 on the kit from Advance Adapters

I would like to redrill the tranny holes and clock it myself

Any comments or knowledge on this swap would be appreciated

just get the gotoguy clocking ring, it's MUCH thinner, and you get plenty of engagement that way. I'm running his on my flipped 300 and it works fine.

Guys this may sound crazy but are you redrilling the holes in the tranny or putting new studs in the dana 300

On the back of the nv3550 tranny I only have room for one more set of holes, I dont care about having a flat skid plate but, I dont want the 300 to drag the ground either

If you did the swap with a nv3550, and you only have room for one more set of holes how much will that clock it up?

I have the same tranny and used the go2guy ring apeters89 mentioned. Its nice and thin and allows you a couple of clocking positions. If I remember correctly I had to oblong one or two holes on the tranny.

I am going to look at this gotoguy ring before I decide to start drilling holes in the tranny
