Ya I definetly dont want to have problems with it leaking. That will drive me crazy. I already have a 231 with a SYE, which I will probably end up using if I cant get the right parts to make this work with out having any issues, like it leaking, or shifter problems. Seems like there would have to be a way to get the 300 not to leak.

And yes, it is nice to see some serious fab work and not on tons and full width.
Didnt think of it at first, but seems like Im hearing some pretty bad horror stories about these axles spinning the tubes. Didnt realize that the plugs are just pressed in. I still have to install the internal, so before I do that I plan on welding them up.
