    you can get the parts from All-O-Matic in JNB or from ZF in Edenvale.

    Best would be to put the vehicle on a trailer and tow it to Sean at the Gearbox Company in Stryjdom Park.

    Hi Beesblaas

    if your budget commands you to look at sub 200K Value rigs, then yes the TDV8 3.6.

    If you can stretch to 350-400K then rather look for a TDV8 4.4 (2010-2012).
