I am pondering replacing my gearbox at some point. Tembo came from the military with a rebuilt engine 2.5 engine, LT77 gearbox and low ratio 230 transfer case. The rebuild stamped plates are on each item. The engine and transfer case are solid and good for maybe 5-10 more years (knock on wood). I am not as sure about the LT77.
Ashcroft Transmission which is fairly close by in Luton recommend upgrading to the R380 if you are going to replace the gearbox but I am not sure. Yes, I acknowledge that the LT77 is probably not as strong as the R380 but given that Tembo is stripped down to reduce wieght to the minimum (as opposed to being crammed with extra overland toys) and I tend to drive slowly and sedately always, especially off road, do I need the R380?
Any thoughts or experiences would be appreciated...
