If you jack it up with all four wheels off the ground, can you spin the front tires???

Could be as simple as the rear brake shoes rusted to the drum , the brake cam frozen and holding tension on the shoes , the rear diff maybe locked up from bearing failure , the axle bearing in the brake backing plate maybe be frozen

Just curious, the OP never mentioned if this 300 is 2wd, or 4 and his other post was about front brakes.

Whatever the issue, diff, bearing failure or sticky brakes Neither of the rear wheels will turn, the axle is a solid through shaft with no open diff. Start with the easiest, brakes. Let us know how you get on.

No, he did not mention if 2wd or 4wd. This is why I asked about being able to spin the tires. If he had just the back jacked up, trying to spin the tires, and it's 4wd then the tires would not spin. It could be that simple. Correct?
Since he did not post if 2wd or 4wd I thought maybe he didn't know what he had. At 1:00 a.m. I was going for the simple approach. LOL

I did not see his other post about the front brakes.

Yep, one and the same, lol, but regardless your still not off the hook because I don't think ??that contest issue was ever settled, and I believe fish had specific details.

I have a feeling yall will never let me off that hook. There was a time when I could do those Daisy Duke's proud but that boat has left the dock I put a new Timney trigger in my AR so maybe I'll have a dead hog soon to throw on the rack. That's the only thrill I can offer @fishfiles.
