Very nice! How long did it take for him to make those? Been thinking about the same- I lifted your old rig slightly and have been getting some driveline vibration.

Ordered them through Lucky8. Took two weeks total. Price was actually less than I anticipated too.

My X-Deflex kit arrived from X-Eng yesterday. Simon puts together some very nice kit and I am impressed with the design, especially the fact that it used a lot of off the shelf Rover parts to include a spare shaft, drive flange, and tie rod ends.

I had been driving without a rear sway bar, but with 5" of lift and gear on top my truck could be scary at times.

The installation was pretty straightforward. I ended up bolting the sway bar to the Equipe skid plate vice the frame as the skid plate is in the way.

My X-Brake also arrived and made it's way on to my truck. I am very happy to finally ditch the stock drum setup. The kit is awesome and was a pretty easy install. In the end I gained about an 1" of clearance under the e-brake.

Only driven 5 miles so far, so I can't really tell. It does feel different though. I got the kit through Lucky8. Not sure how much it is as was part of a drug deal.

Aren't all LR e-brakes cable operated? You just use your stock cable unless your cable enters the back of the e-brake backing plate.

Point of reference, after about 2,000 miles my X-Brake wasn't gripping tight enough to hold the truck. Quick adjustment of the cable sorted it, obviously it just bedded in a little.

true that all are cable....i should have said cable all the way to the drum..... i used a d1 full cable setup on my 88 rrc since my linkage had gotten all rusted and seized....just wondering if that xbrake would still work as im surprised at the big gain in ground clearance

I have a Disco 200Tdi and it sits pretty high up, so the little X-Brake skid plate now sits flush with the bottom of the frame rails.

I fitted my X-Deflex to my 90 and found a noticable improvement in road handling. Used the same mounting method as Wolf. Great product.

How does it bolt to a NAS truck? What do they cost?

They bolt to the sway bar mount or to the fuel tank skid like we did. I think they run about $450 for the kit.

Started the 4.10 gear swap! Rear is done, waiting on some parts to finish the front.

After a few hiccups, like having to change the front pinion flange from 4 spline to 24, and having to replace the front pinion outer bearing, all the gears are in. I was suprised and relieved that I was able to shift front pinion shims around to get a nice wear pattern on the ring.

The 4.10 gears are a nice upgrade. I've lost some of my top end speed, but now I have more low end "umph." I can't wait to try the new gears on the trail. The best part is that now my speedometer is actually spot on!
