New or Rebuilt LT95

Sorry for the repost but looking a new or rebuilt LT95 for a friend's shop. Please PM. Customer is not looking to cobble together parts (though I appreciate some of the previous PMs regarding used ones..he is just being a pain). They tried Ashcroft and they did not want to do the job.

Rob D in ABQ rebuilt an LT95 for me. I arranged for a good core to be dropped off in ABQ and UPS delivered a really heavy crate few weeks later. In addition to the rebuild, Rob installed a TRB upgrade that I sourced in AUS. Awesome work and awesome guy.

Seems like everyone always has good things to say about Rob.

Out of curiosity what is a TRB upgrade?

Taper Roller Bearing. The intermediate shaft of the LT95 transfercase uses brass/bronze shims between the gears. There can be a lot of side thrust that beats up these shims, resulting in the gear cluster falling out of tolerance somewhat quickly. Heat, noise and abnormally fast wear result. Particularly when behind beefy engines. The TRB kit uses gears that have been machined to accept taper roller bearings for each gear in the cluster that effectively resist the side thrust. This mod was utilized by the AUS MOD for their 4BD1/4BD1T powered LT95 rovers in the mid-80s. Most of the TRB kits also utilize .996 high range gears, although some have 1.123.
