Divorced LT 230

Is there a kit to attach a LT 230 to a Asin Auto, or a C4? Is there a Divorce kit?

Also, the weight of the LT once un-hitched from the host Trans..

Kicking around choices for a V6 powered buggy.

Slightly over 100lbs with the parking brake


It's heavy and awkward as hell to move around

Oh my.

at that weight, I can source quite a few rather beefy alternatives.

I wanted lighter, and for some reason thought the Rover had a lightweight box.

I have 3 RF1A Toyota boxes, and there not too bad. I was interested in the internal differential for high speed stability.

It's like 70lb. I can lift it into place by myself. What he is talking about is with the enormous drum brake kit. Which you would never run.

Buck was kind enough to reach out to me with some additional details around this case.

I am now going to start planning to use a LT 230 based box.

I have a few quick q's.

I am researching on the details around the different versions.

Whats the breakdown for Rover \ Box \ Model numbers?What year Rover should I target for for the better box?
What VIN letter, tag code or part number should I look for?
Any know issues I can check for while I pull or inspect the box?

Anyone in Texas with a box they want to shed? (Yes. that's up to 2 days driving folks.. Its a big place .. we get used to it .. )

Check ashcroft website. If you a little digging it will give you the code letters/numbers out of the serial number that tells you what vehicle it was installed in originally.
