Big thanks to Galpin for his never ending tenacity for the "trail fix threshold". Couldn't have done it without him!
We definitely upped our game. I started a thread to see how it rates.

Because it stopped raining for many hours today, I washed it and created a Flickr album:

Whew, I need a vacation from Rover work.

Yes, mine wore out awhile ago so I had already replaced them. Found the replacements at RN: GROMMET REAR DOOR HARNESS DEFENDER, RNE622, AMR3963 - Rovers North - Classic Land Rover Parts

I think some folks hit the trail with less than "good working condition" rigs and fall victim to there own lack of preparedness...clearly the aforementioned trail repair, flip flops, half shirt, short shorts...its all attention getting stuff...just sayin...

Hey now! What failed in the tcase (which honestly isn't that old, maybe 20k on it I'm told...it was a rebuild from AB) was the crosspin. Which is why Ashcroft makes this upgraded replacement:
Ashcroft Transmissions

Apparently it's a weak spot in these LT230s. Who knew. Now I do!

I hate how a $100 part can ruin a nice day on the trail, but that seems to always be the case.

EXACTLY! That's what had me/us scratching our head the most, it's not like everything grenaded....it just sort of "stopped". One, small, underdesigned part and it's curtains for the day (though, not the weekend).

Underdesigned? With that ultra low gearing coupled with lockers and oversized MTs, how much additional torque are we asking that stock $100 shaft to accommodate? 2-3x? Sounds like a problem for our local Ed to solve!

Wow! that's fortunate. The prior owner experience was different. It tc completely grenaded. Shit was so bound up we ended up pulling both shafts and I towed him off the trail with a couple tree straps.

Terrifying cutting into my Ashcroft console! But it came out pretty well. Things are finishing up pretty nice now.

LED SIDE LIGHTS

So I mounted the side light LED's - Baja Design small LED's from ASH.

Awesome little beasts they are! Throw a PERFECT pattern for illumination on the side of the truck. Very easy to install, look great and perfect for what I wanted them for. Highly recommended - they are great. They don't come with any wiring, switches, loom or anything - and you have to put the male plug attachment together - easy as easy gets...so a harness is all you need, plus a switch. I found them very good.

Thanks Ash!

Did the garrison outfitters window felt upgrade. Total pain in the ass and pretty messy, but hopefully worth it. No more window rattle.

Sorry to hear that was your experience, you'll find it flawless installed properly. One of the better upgrades!
