do you plan on using new ball joints, brakes, bearings, seals, gear oil etc? because thats your budget right their. how about a ring and pinion? carrier? locker?
your going to have to retube the long side of the housing, so thats going to be a nice chunk of DOM. how about brackets to get it into your rig? welding gas, wire, paint etc.

just some things to think about

No gears? Which Currie? Is it locked? Gears and bearings will cost you over 2/3 of your budget.

You're dreaming at $300.

the currie hi9 isnt a nine inch center section just so you know. its an 8.8 ring and pinnion. thats why there is no pinnion support.

$300 is very unrealistic for anything that is going to be reliable and done correctly.

just keep saving money and wait till you can do it right.

Put down the meth and pick up a real catalog with real prices. Spell and grammar check wouldn't hurt either.
