    Default Maiden Voyage

    Got the Scrambler out on Sunday, but due to not doing a complete PCC/PCI I went out with a set of dead batteries in the camera. It performed very well until I found a bottomless mud hole and a gigantic stump or rock in the middle of it, sheared off 3 out of 6 bolts on the skid and mangled it up pretty good. Here's the aftermath101_1934.jpg101_1935.jpg101_1936.jpg101_1937.jpg101_1938.jpg

    WOW!!! Ah, those stock skids are just big old stumpcatchers anyway, as you found out!!

    Get a clocking ring from Great Lakes offroad and a speedi-sleeve, for about $75 you can clock the D300, and run a flat skid!

    Let me know if you want the part #'s, I'll dig them up.

    Glad to see the old 8 get some use!!

    Oh Yeah, I have a stock skid/crossmember/tranny mount that's in good shape if you need one.

    Yep, they sure are. I do plan on a tummy tuck in the future, HH6 has cut Jeep funds to GAS ONLY for a while. I think I'm gonna modify my current trans/tcase adapter to clock it if I can, but if ya have the part #'s hanging around that'd be great if ya post'em up just in case. And thanks for the offer on the skid, I'll hit ya up if I tear up the other one off the 7.

    You didn't waste any time beating on that thing. Those bolts look like they will be fun to get out.

    Will a 231 clocking ring work on the 300? If so, I have the schematic drawing for one that I could post up.

    That's a good ? I'd have to do some research on that, right now I'm running the AA T18a to Dana 300 adapter, don't really want to go much more as far as adding more between trans and tcase, I'm on the verge of needing new shafts as it is and adding another 3/4 to 7/8 inch might just put me over that line of pulling DS apart at full flex. For now I'm gonna swap the skid from the 7 over this weekend and than I'll do some measuring to see what I can do as far as adding a clocking ring or if someone makes a clockable trans/tcase adapter.

    Ouch!!
    Bless those who serve beneath the deep, through lonely hours their vigi keep.
    May peace their mission ever be,
    Protect each one we ask of thee.
    Bless those at home who wait and pray, for their return by night or day.
