    That is quite awesome...reliability seems to be an issue though if you look at all the pics of the thing getting fixed...but still cool /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That's the infamous 'Mog. Those portal axles are becoming quite popular. But they are a pain to convert to usage in anything else, primarily due to super long pinions.

    Gotta love the Mogs /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I've seen used ones on the net through a dealer in NJ for as little as 15 grand on up, depending on the condition of the truck.

    That thing is awesome. I want one so bad.
    But, looking at pics 1 and 4....when are people going to figure out how to mount a directional tire. Urrhhh (guess it's just a pet-peeve of mine.)

    Uni-mogs KICK ASS!! There is a guy who has one by where I work. It's been for sale for awhile. You can pick up refurbished ones for about $8000. Here is one I'd like to have! Crew cab, camper, the whole works! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    There are kits out there to let you install the axles into your K5. They're expensive and the Mog final gear ratio is around 7.6:1. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif So even with 44-inch tires you can't drive on the highway without some sort of under drive. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif One of the site members competed in TTC this year with a mog-axled K5. He has the low range section of an NP203 installed in front of his 205, simliar to the doubler that Off-Road Design sells. However, his is custom made to install the 203 section backwards! This lets him use the 203 as a 1:2 underdrive, putting his overall gear ratio back to something useable on the higway. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    That truck has a pop up camper on the back. That truck and another simular mog out of Washington are making some long distance back coutry runs. They have a website set up detailing what they are doing and where they are. I have it book marked at home and will post a link. Last I hear they were in Alaska.

    Here you go. I think the one on the left is on 54's. the one on the right is on about 40's. The truck on the right is about 8ft tall to give you an idea how masive the one on the left is.
