will the TD5 LHD like Stephen sells (Safari Rover) work? or close enough? Air filter mount bracket and harness hole need adding (if there an old bulkhead to salvage off of?) Any other differences known? Seems $1450 isn't too bad if that's all the extra work needed...

Don't know how the TD5 bulk heads differ from the 4.0 Auto box NAS ones . But I can get galvanized one in the UK for under $1,400.

Shipped here and all? $1400 US dollars for a Galv BH is great.... but if that's in Euro and not shipped, well that's different.

Best prices I have seen stateside are ~1200-1800 for a LHD TD5 non-galvy so that is good. Not too many mods needed. Main issue is the bracket for the air filter.

Ashtree has a bad rep among UK owners. There's a guy in Ireland that does better work for less money. I'll look for a link.

Thats hard to believe, Ashtree is the company that both Richard's Chassis and Marsland Chassis recommend for Galvanized bulk heads

The Td5 bulkhead will have to be modified to work in a NAS truck. I haven't done one but I hear it is a pain. You should be able to find a ROW bulkhead that might work better. I also remember something about the Td5 bulkhead not being as easy to convert RHD to LHD?
