worked out pretty good cut the door out made a template and moved it back behind the fender after lots of measuring. had to move it a little forward to avoid the body mount on the inside which made my fenders a little smaller.

So what degree do you guys tilt the rear third at? I ended up having to re-due the rear axle perched and am trying to figure out a good degree to set it at

And of course I forgot to check it before cutting the old ones off

This is what I got at full droop right now. Yoke tilted up 10į at full droop

I usually match the angle up at the t-case at ride height to keep the driveline from vibrating while traveling down the road.

Post a pic of your bracket for the cable shifters on the D300 if you have time. I'm working on something similar....

I built the braket around the Transmision shifter wider this time and even all the way around it for more support. Built it wider because Iím still moving the tabs around tell i get it adjusted

This was my original thought to slide over the shift rails but I just ended up putting a 1/4Ē nut in the existing slot and running a bolt through it. Iíll probably weld the nut in when I pull the d300 to put gears in it

Cool part! I just ran the studded heim joint through the hole on the D300 shift rail which is I think what you are doing.
I was having a hard time shifting the case, felt a little bound up.

How is the bulkhead for the cable mounted for the D300 side? *edit* I see the pics now, I had no coffee before...

I see the bulkhead mount off the top of your crawl box on the shifter side looks good!

Yea I just bolted the hiems to the rails.
Mine also feels like it binds a little so I put pressure on it and slowly let the clutch out and it goes right in

They will always feel like that unless the rig is running and you have the tranny in neutral.

Even the high end cases feel like that.

Was getting pissed off at my old miller 140 welder for not keeping up. Got the thing back in 2006

Was time for and upgrade and was able to squeeze a miller 215 in the budget.
Hopefully will be picking up a tig torch and spool gun for it soon.

Out with the old and in with the new
