Okay guys as you can see I have the jeep up and moving now the problem that I'm having is with the dodge Dana 60 being a low pinion. I'm having problems with my front driveshaft angles being that the pig is so long making my front driveshaft short.I just do not like the way it looks. So I picked up a 1979 ford Dana 60 high pinion which is almost complete ready to be installed in the jeep I will be posting pictures of it and the truss and the build the front axle it should be up and moving matter of a month. Will be flipping the dana 300 over because I have the clocking ring. Have to see how much it leaks this will make my decision if I go back to a np231.

Waiting on my upper link bracket from balistic fab. Np231 is installed. Dana 300 I had the clocking ring didn't allow me to flip it. So went back to 231 with sye.
