The old style axles will stick out of the center cap on alloy wheels without a spacer.

These are "built" new style 24 spline axles with hd shafts and cv's and Great Basin built 4:10 diffs with Trutrac in front and Detroit in the rear. Owner, an enthisuaist whom you guys rub shoulders with @ events like last months Winter Romp, chose these mechanical diffs over air lockers. None of the "old style" 10 spline stuff was retained. Had intended HD flanges all around, dislike the cheesy rubber caps, will swap those out when the 2nd pair arrive.

This truck won't see an alloy.

Wheel/tire are 10 inch wide steel rims with 35 x12.5 Maxis directional mud terrains. Despite wide offset, they still gave the truck a horrible turning radius. The spacers are to regain turning radius in front, in the rear to add stability/track width. The bottom of the rear crossmember is right around 30 inches off the ground. This is a purpose built, very tall truck on soft springs. While I'm building mechanicals, Trey is fitting a full external SD 6 point cage to add some protection.

Having just completed and installed a real dash, and then an alternator, I thought I was done with rover repairs for 2018. I was wrong.....
That distinctive sound of a hole in the muffler is just that a hole in the muffler. Looking at the rest of it, its not far behind. Time or a new catback set up. Thank god my wife long ago gave up on my toy repairs....

Cat back replacement with genuine parts proved a little more difficult than expected....thanks to a missing chassis to exhaust bracket/hanger. Something you just done notice until too late... ZachNorth to the rescue. Generic bits just didn’t look fit for purpose.
As soon as that’s on, I can finish the alignment correctly. It’s probably 95% there.

Busy weekend. I swapped out my dented, leaking oil sump, adjusted the valves and installed a T-Max duel battery system.

Changed Oil, and installed new gasket on rear differential.
I don't think my rear diff is has stock internals, it looks different from stock and the etching on it makes me think it was at least rebuilt.

Also unplugged a very plugged diff breather

Smile New to tread - TD5 Defender 110

hi everyone,

New to tread here. This project like all of yours has been a labor of love with my 4 boys. I learned a lot from friends and I?ve gained the confidence to venture into the mechanical aspects recently. This is very different from my day job so I am loving it. Three of my favorite additions to make the truck suitable for North America have to be the two webastos ( Top C & AirTop ) .... it gets cold up here !! & the Global RoamerDrive.

Cheers,

Crazy Canuck !
