Reason for fitting it was (I was told) the D2 box doesn't have a weak spot in the sector shaft like the regular 4-bolt etc... touch wood it's been incredibly reliable, was fitted new/recon in 2006/7 and still going strong with zero leaks.

The D2 box is a unique bolt pattern on the chassis though (unlike the stock coiler 3/4/6 bolt boxes), and I've seen a lot of people use P38 boxes mounted outside the chassis rail as another option, but no experience of those.

d2 boxes have a much larger sector shaft than a normal 4 bolt box,

 

However

 

the worm inside the box is very soft & easy to flat spot / punch through, i found this out after bursting 4 steering boxs with an average life span of 20 miles

Trailing arm, spring mounts and bump stop all tacked into position should probably fit diff, halfshafts etc to see if it all still goes together after the cut and shut regards Stephen 20200701_164836.thumb.jpg.5ac191967384a07930be153d3c6913f0.jpg

They're so lightweight and portable! :lol:

At least the truck won't fall over ;) weight in the right place isn't too bad, I'd rather have 200kg extra in the axles than a pointless suspension/body lift and a load of tat on the roof rack for appearance.

Reminds me of this guy: https://ck5.com/forums/threads/72-k5-gregs-might-as-well™-build-iso-benchtop-metal-lathe.224462/

He went with custom axles and just reused the Mog portal boxes if I remember correctly. Probably a whole lot lighter :D

Still follow that thread after you put me onto it Ben! :D  Even pinned to my browser.

I followed that for a few years and then lost track of it. I’d forgotten about it until you shared the link here.

Is it nearly done yet !?
