I'm disappointed that this isn't a thread about a Gladiator, but on the other hand I love these sorts of off-the-deep-end project threads where you've got pretty much nowhere to go but up!

I'm the complete opposite. I'm thankful this isn't a "watch me spend 15k upgrading my 35k Gladiator" thread, and is instead something much entertaining and unique.

I wasn't thinking of a new one. To be honest, I had forgotten that they even brought the name back.

Traditionally, Land Rovers using the LT230 transfer case have a diff lock, so you have high and low range with neutral in the middle, when you move the transfer shifter fore and aft, but you can move the shifter sideways to lock the centre diff and have the same controls.

For the D2, they didn't include the difflock, so they're open-centred and are meant to rely on the traction control system. But on early ones like yours, the internals are all still there! So if you can actuate the difflock, it'll work. You can either use an aftermarket linkage, a linkage from a ~2004 when it was available again with CDL, or the linkage from a D1 should basically work too.

If your transfer shifter has an H pattern and/or can be moved laterally, or there's a separate unidentified mechanism in the vicinity, you might already have it sorted.

whoa this is actually pretty cool
