If you're looking at a centre diff rear axle, you might want to think about a Landcruiser 80 series.... they have an electronic diff lock! Disc brakes with an internal drum handbrake. Some of the Y60 Patrols had LSD's, but in my experience the Toyota axle is better in the sticky stuff!

So if the 80 Series is offset (very slightly that's why I'd forgotten), why not use the 80 series box, complete? they have a locking centre diff... the only thing they'd be lacking is the transmission brake... but I'm sure you could cobble up an X engineering type disc!  Oh and they came in either 5 speed manual or 4 speed O/D auto with lockup at around 40 Mph.... none of this silly 90% lockup at 30-50, which eats torque converters when towing... the LC was either on or off.. way better!
