    front digs?

    i've seen it done and am wondering what i need to do it.
    do i have to modify my dana 300 in any way to do this.

    also i've been around, so i've seen the cutting brake handles in buggies but dont rally know much more that that, except thats how you put the brakes on the axle thats unhooked so to speak.

    any tips or help id appricate. im going to get'er done anyway but its much eaiser to learn from expereinced guys that braking stuff a couple of times first.

    this is what im working with

    dana 300 on the back of a crawl box.

    thanks for the help

    I think what you are looking to do is Twin stick your D300.
    there is kits for about 150ish
    or you can do this yourself...for about 40ish.. just make sure you upgrade the spring
    as i herd it sometimes lets go when steep declines

    this site will tell you what you need to do

    Hopefully I,ll get around to doing mine this winter...

    sorry the dana 300 that i got has already got twin sticks.
    but i thought you have to do something to the inside to make it independent?

    With your 300 can you put the rear in neutral? if so then for a front dig you would put the rear in neutral and use the cuttign brake to lock the rear from rolling. Then power to front wheels only and you will pivot arround the rear wheels

    I get confused once numbers get bigger than I can count on my appendages. I'm only good up to 21!
    one quarter turn before something breaks is a good torque spec.

    put this http://www.cncbrakes.com/cb.asp?grp=...52S&subseries= in a little cj on 42's. Works good but i think the 496 C.I. big block really helps it kick around the tight corners.

    You need a bit of force to keep the wheel locked but it's effective.

    I can't do split brake cutting due to the spool.

    But I use a 4000psi manual ballvalve for a "Line Lock" to hold my rear still. P-Brake cables just couldn't hold against the low gearing.

    You may want to look into AA D300 Outputs. The stock D300's are none to let go under stress.

    I prefer to build it and not buy it, you see it, I probably made it.
