Well there are a multitude of reasons 1st is the dana 300 is stock w/ 23 splines toyota require ugraded , its easier to clock a dan 300 that the yota case , Im running a dana 44 and 9" so its easy to get a 1350 series u joint with out a drive flange , the dana 300 is a cast iron case not aluminum , in its stock form its lower geared 2.61 as opposed to 2.28 , im not saying the toyota is a bad case but dont get me wrong if all stock t-cases were good noone would ever change also also if edison hadnt invented the light bulb most couldnt see?Originally posted by MasterYota:
I wonder why you'd do this? You can get the same twin sticks and low range sets with the Toy case that you can get for the D300.
And it's not as if our X-fer cases have been blowing up anyway.
I could only see this if you had the D300 built already.</font></STRONG>
<font color="yellow">Assuming you have a stock Toyota drivetrain, I see no reason (other than FWD) to undertake this swap. You can get deeper gears for the toyota, and yes the 300 is 23-spline, but the strength difference is marginal. Plus I'd like to see you double 300's with a proven, ~$400 off-the-shelf product. Let alone lenthening the drivetrain by only 6.5 inches.Originally posted by techguru73:
