sm465/dana 300 combo

Im going to be swapping a 32 spline sm465 thats bolted to a dana 300 and stainless twin stick setup. This is going to be replacing my h41 and stock 4 speed combo. Does anybody else on here run this setup? What crossmember design are you guys using?

im back and forth now on what to do for a rear end
I have a mini truck rear with no diff and no brakes. I imagine i could do a centered cruiser rear with it.

upgrade that 1310 yoke and use a 60 or 14 bolt rear axle. If you are set on using cruiser d-lines and axle then you could get a flange from Randy's that will go on the 300 and bolt to cruiser d-line. The rear axle is up to you, use a mini/taco or center a cruiser diff, whatever works for you. Personally I would not use a cruiser diff if I had a centered rear axle but that is just because there are so many options when you are talking centered diff. I think rockthedog had his 300 before going to tons, he may have a centered rear axle left over, or contact Trevor at WFO , check out the used axle section on his site.

Here is his build. Good reading for you. He actually went with a 14 bolt at the time he installed the Dana 300.
Funny. I ended up with his old cruiser housing and now I am just about to order my adapter to put a dana 300/ dana 60 rear in my 40. I guess,Glenn, in few more years, I will be running 42's!

i guarentee you will have 42's someday!

by the way umless you have huge horspower 1310 cv is plenty strong. the rear output shaft is where i would upgrade, however i did run the stock one with 38.5's for years. the new 300 i just put in w/4:1 has the hd output in it but i stayed with the 1310 cv.... also lots has changed since the oneton build rear links and the tcase crossmember.... i have a pic of it somewhere....the one in the build was too soft and allowed the tranny and tcase to roll-tourque too much

Nice glad to hear a 1310 will hold up. I guess the best way to mate my driveshaft is to just put 1310 yokes in it when i lengthen/shorten it. Everything should hold up pretty well as I am only running 35 inch km2's. The biggest tire I plan for is a 37 after an upgrade to longs.

bringing back an old thread, so my procrastinating ass finally went and picked up my trans case. It ended up using the stock 32 spline 205 adapter thats 10.5 inches long making the setup waaaay long for an fj40. Im trying to decide what to do now. Do i sell that adapter, 32 spline 300, and sm465 and get a 10 spline unit and run an adapter and my cruiser case or hold off and get an ORD or novak unit to run what i have just shorten it up. The cost of adapters either way is about the same,but with the cruiser case i can sell the other crap to offset cost and wont have to build a centered diff. With the 300 I get lower gears, twin stick, and a stronger case. Decisions Decisions
