Land Rover Commercial sites

NOTE: TATA is going after independent Land Rover parts companies  and forcing them to change their names if ther names include "Rover" or "Land Rover".   The companies you have bought from for decades might now have a new name.

 
 
ARB (Australia)
Air lockers, a very rugged 12V chest refrigerator and more.   The fridge is expensive but very well worth the cost if you go out on the trail longer than a weekend. The Green Rover uses a Salisbury ARB air locker and chest refrigerator manufactured by the same company as the ARB unit.

Their primary business is rebuilding Land Rover drive line components but they manufacture a series high ratio transfer case conversion. The low range gearing stays the same and high range fourth gear becomes a permanent 27.5% overdrive.  Ashcroft high 4th gear and 4.7:1 diffs overall ratio is very close to stock trasfercase and 3.54 diff overall ratio.  The Green Rover uses one behind the V8 in her series transfercase. It does a very good job of handling the V8's power.  High range is very close to having a 3.54 R&P without affecting low range.
