Got a bit of work done on it today.

Installed the front locker and set up the gears. It's so much quicker on a removable 3rd with carrier adjuster nuts compared to a Dana that also requires shims for carrier placement and bearing preload.. 12 in/lbs preload on the pinion bearings, pattern that's long and nicely in the middle of the gear face, 15 in/lbs carrier bearing preload and 0.2mm (8 thou) backlash. Strong, quiet and reliable setup.

Opened up the Dana 300. Bearings and gears look great so I'll throw some new seals in and be done with it. I removed the shift rails to remove the interlock pils for independent control of the front and rear output shafts. You have to remove the idler gear to get to the set screws that keep the shift forks on the shift rails. Not that bad of a job really. Also removed the shifter bracket from the front output bearing retainer for more clearance.

Got the 3rd member in the housing and threw the Longfields in.

Pics showing:
-chromo CV's
-D300 with cover and idler gear removed
-cable twin stick shifter and billet D300 cover - cover should stop leaks and add to the case rigidity and therefore the gears strength
-Dana 30 axle next the Patrol chromo. The cross-sectional area is 32% more in the Patrol. Throw 4340 chromoly into the mix and the axle is theoretically over twice as strong.

Hey mate, saw you got your gearbox back in. Good effort! Bit of bad luck burning up the friction plates due to fluid levels.

I'm planning to run 265/75/R16's (32x10.5) on the street - most probably the Goodyear DuraTrac's cos i like the MT/AT hybrid. Then 37's off road. Haven't decided what tyre to run off road yet. The drive train should hold up to stickies but the price/life is hard to justify if you're not driving comps.

Any thoughts on tyres mate?

No update on this build since last weekend but just picked up my new (to me) 55t press ($300 on ebay) and 600mm x 10mm pressbrake attachment. Gonna redo the skid, make a fuel tank skid and maybe build new front and rear bars down the track. Looking forward to being able to bend plate for brackets instead of welding everything!

Sweet. I've had just about all the main types and i reckon the treps were the best but the ware quickly. Swampers work good. Maxxis crawlers i dont rate much they just wear down. Cambo runs 37 bfg krawlers and he goes absolutely every where. I have them in 35x13.5 but i diff out. Boggers arnt that good so stay away from them. You'll be able to pick up so ex comp tyres and rims easy.
Press looks good

Have a look at Nitto (mud grapplers), they are grippier than the treps in most cases but much longer wearing. We have been running them on comp trucks for a while and have been really surprised by their lifespan.

Seen that they are getting a reasonable wrap around the place and they do have some pretty darn aggressive tread patterns but have not had the pleasure (or need as yet) to try them.
