Sorry John. That is bad info. They are available off the shelf, spendy but available. I bought a new bell housing, flywheel housing etc. recently along with all of the other factory bits to mate a 4bd1t to a rebuilt LT95 with the TRB ala the LT95A.

They were also fitted to the LT85. It would be simpler just to buy a complete truck in Australia and import it...

A member of our local club, Nick Markiw, has been working on it for some time. Has the 5.3 and a GM tranny mated to the LT230 in the stock location, so no driveshaft issues. I got to drive it a few miles in Ocotillo Wells back in May, and it's freaking awesome. I don't know if he plans on making a kit, or instructions, or what.

He is working on a Gen IV transplant as well.

Was that E-ROD 5.3L with GM manual trans mated to LT230 TC?

Neil. Nick's Gen III is not mated to the for speed. It has a Jeep Wagoneer TC.
The Gen IV mated to the 6 speed, he is developing an adapter for the LT230. That's the set up I want.

Why not the Ford Mustang v6 or 8 with the six Speed stick that's the same box as used on Defender?
