Manny , every one I ever did has a 2 inch lift on it with the stock shocks ( as far as I know ) in the rear , not because I had to use the lift , just because I wanted to ------ I missed a 87 350 for $250 Friday by one call , the guy said if the guy that called first didn't buy it he would call me , never happened
Hmmm.

Is that two inch lift in the rear and no lift in the front to make it level?

I was going to try to use 350 Rancher shocks all around if/when I ever do this.
2" lift all round on mine jeep, I made my own mounts though but centre of original shock mount to new mounts is exactly 2". Mine sits level, if you wanted to be really anal about it I personally think the front could do with being 2 1/4" or the rear 1 3/4".

Jeep , I guess I type that misleading , I use 2 inch lift front and rear , Manny was asking about the rear so I only mentioned the rear , Sam is right that it will look like a nose dive with stock shocks , my wife's 300 has Brute Force 750 shocks and the 2 inch lift brackets and she sits 1 1/2 inches taller than me to the top of the rack , we do run the same size tires 26's , but different brands , the ride height of the two are very close , I did raise the front of the front fenders on both our bikes with brackets from the frame to the fender , makes it look a lot better

That fender to frame lift pictured anywhere in a build thread or one of your other posts?

I don't currently have a 300, but tinker on a buddy's occasionally and have my eye out for a cheap project.

Unfortunately most of the time when I find a cheap project I'm broke.

Shade, the one that my buddy has showed up in the local paper and he got it for $650. 1990, 4x4, Red and not in horrible condition. No brakes, but other than that it was driveable. I would have gotten it but was short on cash at the time.

I've added disc brakes and 12" wheels to it since, and he's put cheap LED lights all over it. He picked up a 350D a few weeks ago for $200 and I'm going to put the rear in his 300 and use the rest to fix that 350D that has been sitting in my yard for...I think about 2 years now LOL.

That does look super clean! Did you have to make any mods to the swing arm?
I am doing the same conversion and it appears that the swing arm is about 2 inches further out on the axle housing

no mods to the swing arm, you make a mounting bracket and weld it to the axle tube , then that bracket bolts to the swing arm

Just a heads up, if anyone needs a rear end conversion I have 3 to choose from. a complete rear end out of a 350d with 892 original miles, and two lightly used rear ends out of big red 250 atc's.
@Manny ..... Just enquiring .... Do you still have these ^^
