Yepp thats right! I'm now the proud owner of a couple of volvo C306 portals. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif Complete with vaccum controlled selectable lockers front and rear and 5.99 gears. I am so excited!!
The "rear" axle is actually the center axle from the C306 (6x6).
Only downsidse is rear axle missing the outer gear and brake drum on one side... but who cares, total cash paid = 0$ /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
I just had to go to pick them up.

I will try to get some pics up today if anyone is interrested.

What? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif You dont think they are strong enough? I have full confidence they'll hold up just fine under the blazer.

Depends on your tire size and such, they are definately weaker than mogs but stronger than 60's...

Unimog style portal axles. They have a gear reduction at the hub, and are generally very strong. I don't know anything specific about these volvo axles, but thats what it sounds like they are..

Re: Guess what i picked up yeasterday!

I haven't decided on tires yet. I'm afraid economy will have to make that call for me, but with 5.99 gears and a 6.2L i dont think under 40" is an option.

Here are a few pics from when we unloaded the axles in the garage.

My buddy Dick thinking: -Will the table hold? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

The complete side of the rear axle

Waiting to get some attention
Now, all i have to do is lift the truck, fab new spring perches, find some wheels..... who am i kidding? This will take a year! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

And this is a Volvo C306 for those of you that didn't know.

You can't link to pictures from Imagestation, kinda like Webshots. Just post the urls. Once I copied and pasted the urls, the pics showed up in the post just fine...wierd... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

Re: Guess what i picked up yeasterday!

i changed the pics to URLs. I could see them just fine in the post, but i guess that could be because im logged into imagestation.

Well well... /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
