I can't recall ever seeing any, though I am sure it is possible. I just don't know of any off the shelf kit that can do it.

This also begs the question..... you got an evil plan somewhere? Doing a transfer case swap?

Since we have fully diverted from Randy's question, I saw that artical too. Its extremely cool, but there has been a company making 9in 40 spline axles for a while now. Out the door rears are $3000. I would way rather go that way and get the beef but keep the ground clearance! Of course, if I had unlimited money I would go with flipped 35 spline 9in with 406 mog outers. Steering and full hydro all around. But thats just me.

Back to Randy, I have not heard of anything like that for the front of a stock rover. I do know that you can modify the lt230 to run in rear full lock/front full lock if your intent is to cut the front for rear hop steer while wheeling. If you asked the question because you are thinking of dropping the t-case, don't! The LT is arguably the only thing that LR ever got totally right!

Randy,
Someone may have made manual hubs at one time as back about 1983 there was an early version of the LT230 that was selectable 2 or 4WD rather than CDL. I have never seen one in person but have pictures in the parts fiche. I would think that you would have the same problems with upper swivel bearing lubrication and CV joint lubrication as the series trucks had if you ran manual hubs. Also, manual hubs were an option on the series trucks...they came standard with drive flanges, so it won't hurt the t-box to run with the drive flanges and be turning the front shaft all the time.
I looked at the pics of your project...very nice. One question, though...what made you choose the series t-box over the LT230?
I'm looking for the rubber boot you asked about...I'm pretty sure I have one but I have to find it. Things are not all put away since the move to the new shop.

Yes, you can get them from Ashcroft.

I think they are made by AVM, http://www.avm.com.br/products4.htm

See the chart, model 451 for the hubs plus they come with the 2WD adapter bits for the transfer case.

If someone buys the ashcroft kit I am interested in the non-hub 2wd conversion bits.

evilfij at yahoo dot com

I think DAP had or could get the kit IIRC but I did not buy it because I did not want the hubs as they will not work with my early RRC axle.

Cool.. yeah we all ned to win some $$$ to keep up out habits...lol Rob, I would have liked to go with an lt-230 but I had the series setup here and just did it on the budjut right now. I can always change it out. I would need a complete t-case with brake setup and linkage. this truck is mostly from leftovers and parts from trucks in my yard...lol

After all that reading....... you don't need them!
Actually I sold 3 of the things a long while ago at a Sodbury Sort-out.
They were a P.I.T.A. if you ran along the side of a rut it would disengage the drive to a hub, passenger side I think, leaving one in 2 wheel drive, wondering a) why you couldn't get up the hill b)why it came out when I was sure I'd engaged the hub at the start of the day.
Once I'd rumbled what was occuring they were wipped off, cleaned up and taken to Sodbury, can't remember what I got for 'em
