Day-trip yesterday...

First clue -



Got it? -



Where the "God of Gearing" Richard "ROCKWATT" Redacted weaved his magic on my Jimny once again -



Brand-new (i.e. not remanufactured like the Rocklobster gears) 4.87:1 gears - these are 4.87:1 on the low side of the box, and 1.63:1 on the high side, where as my old box / a Rocklobster box is 4.16:1 on the lowside and 1.51:1 on the high side. To adjust the gearing for the 31" Maxxis Trepadors I'm now running on the Jimny -



It's sat in a special cradle mount too -



... with a spine to further hold and reinforce the transfer box casing...

Warning, the following images show scenes of transfer-box porn! ;)









Snug fit with the spine attached!

Awesome gearing, now cruises happily at 70mph on the motorways, and still pulls away to overtake...

The speedo is almost spot on, it currently reads 1mph over with new tread on the tyres! ;)

Chuffed as a Train with it... Just need to go and test it!... Hmmm, we're doing the Machynlleth Loop ("The B&st@rd Lane") in a couple of weeks... LOL

MANY THANKS to Richard "ROCKWATT" Redacted ! B)

Here's his contact details again -



And here's the full blog on my website - www.bits4vits.co.uk/store/regearing-the-...-then-/blog_336.html

Is your new transfer box quiet with all new gears rather than the mixture of a normal Rocklobster Dave?

The underdog often starts the fight, and occasionally the upper dog deserves to win - Edgar Watson Howe.

Yup, that's the other thing I forgot to mention... silently purrs along now, rather than sounding like a rally car! LOL :woohoo:

The first thing I forgot to mention (in this build thread, I did mention it in the blog), that my case was split and disassembled to get the two-wheel-drive-low ready selectors out of it...
