How does that work? Of course the first thing I heard of it being on was a Jeep
It doesn't. Just goes straight.
articulated frame or skid steer are your options there.........
yeah, you see some big rigs... used in logging or pipeline construction or whatever that have two non-steering axles. They generally have a side-to-side pivot somewhere in the middle and a ginormous hydro ram to turn the rig. Kinda cool... It'd be sweet to see someone use two rear Rockwells (so cheap these days) and try that type of set up. One things is for sure... no u-joints to worry about.
If you had line locks at each wheel with open diffs (or selectable lockers) you could just lock one side (or lock some combination of wheels) and let the others drive. It would turn pretty well that way.
There is a rig in the latest "Offroad" that is setup like that...I can find the article if you want details...
Are you talking about the jeep in Fourwheeler? #50 in the list for top truck challenge. It's got non steer rockwells and pivot steer
Yeah...that is the thing I meant...
.........thats called an articulated frame. just like a front end loader.
don't get FW anymore... TTC coverage is cool, but the rest of the mag blows. I flip through it at the store, find the one (if that) article worth reading and then toss that biatch back on the shelf. To much bling. Crawl pwnz it in every way.
Ya I was. It made me take a double-take when I read it. Sounds like quite an interesting setup actually...
Here's a picture of a hunting rig (conveniently tipped on it's side) with a pair of non-steering Rockwells. If you look at it you will notice one of the steering rams is broken.
