    Huh ?

    :eek1: What ? I said they have axles from Volvo Sugga TP21, used by the Swedish Military in the 50s and 60s. Vacuum lockers, high pinions, Rzeppa front axleshafts and 2,5 ton strength.

    They look pretty stout. Any idea what gearing they came with and if gears are readily available for them? Also how much do they go for (are you on Euros now?).

    This is a Volvo TP21 "Sugga" (means "hog" in english).
    It´s a really cool old military vehicle. Very good offroad but consumes an awful lot of gas :D

    Alot of European countries went with selectable lockers for their military vehicles starting in the 1950's. I wonder why Uncle Sam didn't? :confused:

    What is the price on a set of axles like that? The Volvo C303's and Unimog axles are nice, but don't go for cheap. The Sugga axles would be much easier to swap onto a leaf spring vehicle also, since they are not of the portal design.

    So what are the specs on these axles? How thick are the shafts, how many splines, etc.......

    60's might be the norm, but you cant beat the bang for the buck.

    Ratio is 5.14:1, the shafts is ~ 1.4 inch thick, not that many splines, but Im pretty sure the shafts are forged. The Suggas are rare, but you can find the same axles under other Volvos, 6x6s for instance..

    Hehe. Du hjelper dem for mye Johan, de må da klare og gjøre litt forskning selv. :D One of the Suggas on that page belonged to a friend of me, BTW..
