Some interesting links that I have stumbled on:

http://www.gearingdynamics.com/cvboot.htm
aimed at Mining company cruisers but some interesting items - CV boots, transfer case auto locker, greasable birfields (via nipple).

The gearbox factory for those who haven't got the link
http://www.gearboxfactory.com.au/
