seat box question...

i need a seatbox for my series hybrid build. I'm using a defender bulkhead and an lt77 tunnel cover... so I thought I needed an lt77 seatbox... but someone just told me the openings are the same for the lt77 and r380 seatbox. I didn't think so... Is this true? Will an lt77 tunnel fit on an r380 style seatbox??? thanks.

They are not quite the same, there is an adapter plate to convert a lt77 seatbox to an r380 seatbox. However, I think you can fit an lt77 under an r380 one.

No they are not the same, i think rovers down south has second hand rhd r380 seat boxes listed $200 all one would have to do is drill the holes for the hand brake lever.They also have the r380 tunnel too. The shapes are different to accommodate the different positioning of the trans and tcase. After installing a 300tdi with the r380 into the place where the lt77 once lived there is some cutting and fab to reuse the old seat box with the r380 the fire wall is the same but they use a different trim. the lower bulkhead trim is the r380. all 3 pieces are different.
