I test fit my flipped D300 last night and it seems to be working out great. I know it's not an Atlas <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> but it cost a hell of a lot less.

Everything seemed to bolt up as promised. I had to cut a bit of floor because my raised driveline put it's vent fitting up into the floor. Also my driveline is a bit shorter then stock so the shifter hole didn't line up as good as it could have.

The kit worked great, it included everything and had good instructions. There are a couple of things I may do different if I ever do it again but on the whole it went together very easy. I think it is a big improvement over a 231 or other NP case. I now have a shorter driveline, real 2 low, twin sticks, iron case and all gears and I can get a cheaper 4:1 kit.

FWIW, I don't really thingk the 231 is *that* weak but I think I was pushing it a little to hard, I was having problems with the planetary gears and chain stretch.

I will post some pics as soon as I can find the damn cable for the digi-cam <IMG SRC="smilies/pissed.gif" border="0">

Now all I have to do is get rid of this pounding headache and get motivated enough to go measure for drive shafts and get on the phone.....I think I'm allergic to <IMG SRC="smilies/beer.gif" border="0">

Including the D300 from a junk yard but not the new drive shafts I eeked in at just under 800 bucks <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">

Not cheap compared to just doing a SYE but I think the extras make up for it. Plus I'm building up a new rig so I was going to have to have new shafts made anyway.

I thought long and hard about an Atlas but even if I buy a 4:1 set (prefer a underdrive anyway) for the 300 I'm still well under the cost of the Atlas.

Hey Dug, I found some heavy ass axles if you're looking to get rid of your thirty and 35. Email me for details or check the Great lakes page.
