Funny that this came back up now as I am just swapping to a short R380 at the moment. I will not do another transfer case swap without making the jig period, or access to a lift. The cheapo transmission jack just doesn't cut it. Also I removed the seatbox and was able to pull the lt77 out and put the r380 in by hand with some assistance.

A transfer case swap is easy in a Defender. A rope through the center seatbox access panel and you can pull it off by hand. You do not need a jack or to take the seatbox off.

Pissing people off on the "net" since 1983.

transfer case only might not be that hard, but last time I pulled out the whole package we had to be 3 under it to lower it by hand, not funny.

What do you guys use for plate and cover, Valeo or Borg & Becker ?
