from LT77 to an R380 stubby in a 110

Was wondering if the tunnel needs to be changed to fit the 380?
and any other changes required?
Thanks

It is designed as a direct fit. No tunnel changes. You do need the newer diff lock linkage. No sure about release parts, but I think they are the same.

I did this conversion four years ago. No tunnel change. If I recall, the kit from Ashcroft contained everything except some of the transfer case linkage parts I needed; my LT77/LT230 had an older linkage setup and I had to buy new.

Make certain you get the special throw out bearing. I have a truck here with an ashcroft stubby r380 purchased from Urban and it was shipped with a regular r380 throw out bearing and the truck is here because the clutch slips.

Just went through this on a Disco R380. The right TO bearing is key (stay away from the HD shit) as well as clean fresh pilot bushing and TURN THAT FLYWHEEL.

If the clutch was done properly 18000 miles ago, I would not touch it. Same for any of the other stuff in there.
