    Same here. From what I hear Mog axles are the way to go. If you want to spend the money to set your rig up for them. I'd say grab it.

    This Unimog owner review is sort of entertaining. I imagine that most of the gearing is straight-cut for durability, because he says "Fuel consumption is quite unbelievable. Most of the energy content in the fuel is used to generate high noise."

    if that thing was around here I would buy it for the curret bid in a heart beat. the axles alone are worth more that that, and I have seen alot of guys trying to rebuild/restore those and looking for parts and willing to pay money for them.

    If memory serves me correct they have drum brakes all around and it is big time expensive to put disc on.A guy in one of the local clubs have a set of them under a 95 land cruiser.Cool ride..

    dont expect this to sell for less than $3000.. just the axles are worth it... portals man.. id buy that and put portals under my truck... yeah portal axles = $3000 + $1200 for adapting d-shafts + $1200 per axle to goto disc brakes... need link setups as leafs will have too much axle wrap... all in all I priced it like $7000 for me to throw them under my truck... here is the deal though...


    I have 40" hawgs (38.8) biggest NJ will allow... now.. if I put 44's under my truck (illegal in nj on road).. lets do some math...

    44 - 38 = 6" / 2 = 3.5" more axle clearance..... so theoretically... most people do 44's to raise axles.. well mogs will do that..... :wink1:
