you might not have enough room in your chassis for an automatic and a doubler with a dana 300. the rear drive shaft will be really short without a serous wheel base stretch. AW4 with a manual shifter and an atlas is worth saving your pennies for and putting in the first time. Flex plate and torque converter and bell housing are the hard part.
A pair of built toyota axles would be my first choice for your project. A built dana 30 like weasels would hold up well with 35's and would bolt in which is nice. Not a fan of the 8.8, would go Toyota or dana 44 before that.
Sounds like you have a fun project ahead of you! Keep us posted on the AW4 to 2.5 stuff
There's happy, and then there is pee on yourself happy. Go ahead and pee man, just pee.
