Well I got the old power train out and sold. Also got the new one in for a test fit. I have room to shift the engine forward so I will make that adjustment for final installation. Now I need to remove the trans and get the tail shaft changed out for the Dana 300 adapter.

Im at a crossroad and needing ideas / advice.

After years of flat towing CJs I just learned that the Dana 300 is not suited to flat towing due to lack of lubrication of the rear output bearing when T-case is in neutral.

Since much of the point of this build was to have it to flat tow behind a motor home this is a problem!

Some research led me to Tri-county Gear in CA who used to do a old that welded slingers inside the case to spay lube on the output bearing. Well I called today and he actually suggest a 12v auxiliary oil pump powered by the tow vehicle to provide lube. This mod with parts is about $1000.

Are there other mod options or a better T-case alternative that would be better for a CJ that is flat towed often and at freeway speeds?

Disconnect the driveshafts?? 2min job with an impact drill. Hang them up with bungee cords.

Pass. Pulling wrenches is the last thing on my mind when the wife and I finally get away together.

A driveshaft disconnect is an option but only slightly better....

Look into the Moroso climbing gear lube.
It really works.
