Where to get new t-case?

Anybody know of a good place to pick up a new t-case for less than the AB price? Thanks

Rob's are clearly very good. If you want cheap, buy a used one out of a discovery series 1.

I called up robinson service and like the idea of rebuilding my case but if i'm gonna do it I might as well lower the gears in the thing. I looked at great basin rovers option and like what they offer but it's almost 3 grand for gears. why is it so expensive? Are there any alternatives?

I dunno exactly, but George said he had a few laying around last time I was there. It'll be less than the AB price for sure.

Keep in mind that 1.6 box is only going to lower your high ratio gears and not change the low ratio gears. If you want to lower both you may want to do that with new ring & pinion gears.

George has brand new 58d suffix boxes - sold on an exchange basis, about 2/3 price of AB.

E-mail Paul Grant in CT if you just want to put a cheap LT230 in there while you "rebuild"...

George is asking 1600 for an LT230 1:6. Man just a few months ago they were less than 1200.

Rob Dassler. Can build it any way you want it. I think he can build a T-Box for a 110 if you want it. Am told that is a great option...But don't know first hand.

I did buy my T-Box from Rob. Good stuff...Good guy.

Interesting... I guess I assumed that would change my low range ratios. I need to do something, I checked into new transfer case gears with Rob, and that was going to be expensive too, an underdrive would be perfect, but I am not sure it is worth $2500.

I currently have 4.11 R&P with ARB's F&R and 35's for the trail. So, I was hoping that I could change out the T/C with a different ration to accomplish my goal.

So finally got the T-box out of the car. Shattered bearing on the input shaft. I'm going to rebuild the thing but I was hoping for a cheaper source for some custom gearing that Great Basin. Are there any other suppliers of t-case gearing?

Follow-up Post:

Second thought.. Would you go with 4.11 instead? Cheaper for sure but I only run 33 inch tires and I have a 4.6. My concern is I take a lot of cross country trips and I don't want to go down I-70 at 3500 rpms. On the other hand I have to tow a 5000 pound trailer with the 90 often which i would love 4.11 for. For teh guys running 4.11s, what are your rpms around 75 mph?

I don't know how beneficial it will be for you, but when I had my Discovery, I had put a 1.6:1 high range transfer case in it (roughly the equivalent of running a stock high range and 4.10's if I remember my calculations correctly), and ran 235/85 tires (32" tires). With the stock 3.54 R&P it turned 3,000 rpm on the nose at 70 mph (GPS, but the speedo was correct after the tire, t-case changes). So I would think that with 33's, you’d be around 3,200-3,300 rpm at 75 with 4.11's (it is splitting hairs, but I think GBR's R&Ps are 4.10s, if that is what you are looking at). Take it with a grain of salt, it is only somewhat related experience...
