I don't think this is the Dark Side, its established enough for me to think elsewhere is. I remember you doing this, must have been from the other forum.

I'd have a go if it was, just because ...
I'd imagine it'd much the same on a post 2007 FFRR (although the diff itself will be different, as it's got a subframe instead of a chassis).

So, now you've got some spare "Engine" money, you're going for an Active diff? I thought you would have been tricking up the defender and adding some lockers to that, along with a winch :rasp:

Have you got the wiring loom? From what Mick has said previously that's the hardest bit. Do you still want my old diff?
