dana 300 transfer case

Hello,

I am running a jeep in mud boggs. I am using a dana 300 transfer case. I was wondering if I could run the front end in high and the rearend in low. I want to have the front tires spinning faster than the rear ones. Can it handle the rpm's. I will be turning it about 6700 with a bbc..





Thanks,

Chris

It wouldn't be a good idea, you'll end up grenading the transfer case.

You could try a smaller tire on the rear axle, or swapping the gears in the front axle to the next higher ratio.

All you are looking for is front-end float, and these are the best ways to get it.

I have also seen wider tires tried for this, but DON'T try this one, it's much easier to get out of control with the wides on the front, and too narrow will not keep you on top like you need to be.

What size tires are you running and what gear ratios do you have.

I am running 35 inch tires with 410 in front and back. I was just wandering on the transfercase because I have a twin stick shifter for it.


Thanks,

Chris
