Mk2 X-Eng X-Brake

I have a brand new, never installed X-Brake from X-Eng.

Details:
http://www.x-eng.co.uk/X-BrakeDef.asp

If you drive off-road, you know how useless the standard Land Rover transmission brake can be. The brake itself is fine, its just that it traps muddy water inside which rapidly grinds down the shoes and bungs up the mechanism.

Our Disk Transmission Brake uses a state of the art monster size mechanical caliper designed for agricultural vehicles and earth moving equipment - so use on a Land Rover is a walk in the park for it! The mechanism is sealed so it will not seize up due to ingress of mud or water and it uses special 'sintered' pads which are resistant to abrasion from mud as well as providing greater friction against the disk than a standard pad.

Replacement pads are readily available from us. We doubt however that you will need any for many years.


The disk has been specially designed for Land Rovers. It is made from tough 10mm thick steel. It has a smaller diameter than a standard drum and does not dangle below the transfer box to help protect it from whatever you are driving over. The caliper mechanism sits in a well protected area at the top, away from most of the mud and water.


This is the Mk 2 X-Brake which is improved but now only fits the Defender 90/110. The older style (http://lucky8llc.com/Products.asp?ProductID=2089) fit the RR/D1/D2 as well. This one will not.

Took the drum brake apart, decided it was in good enough shape, and won't be using this one.

$400 takes it home. Located in San Diego (92124), can ship, but this thing is heavy. Expect about $40 shipping.

Out of curiosity, why won't it fit a Disco or RR? If you can be more flexible on price I may be interested.

If you're local, save a hundred bucks off new!

Extreme low ball offers are ignored.

Maybe if you responded to those offers you might be able to negotiate and get it sold. Good luck with your sale.

I suppose it probably would. That'd make shipping much more affordable, probably about 15 bucks. I'll swing by the post office, pick up a box and make sure.
