Ive been thinking about using a pair of Spider Nines to build a SFA.
How 'bout a set of mogs.
didn't volvo use a setup like that on their SUV's a couple/few years ago.. ? or do they still use em?
not near as hefty looking- but they had the same looking ends on them
I have no idea, but if anyone has pics of a Volvo on mogs that needs to be shared That would be something to see!
LOL they werent near as thick or large as those tjkj pictured- but the design was similar. I don't remember what the SUV was called- but it looked like a volvo
There was a Volvo XC90 that was built on Volvo portal axles from a C303 or something similar.
Some guy in California had an OK looking build with a Dodge truggy on 'mog axles
You forgot Inc's
(Okay it was in the Collage but it needs a large size photo)
Speaking of prices I think inc once told me he spent around $8500 in parts. Goes to show the difference all depending on what combination of parts you choose..
Yeah he lept the stock t-case and rear diff.
What is the fun in that,your pushing the limits of a HP30 and 8.25 with 35" tires.
$26,000-$8,500=$17,500 i like that kinda fun
If were to go SFA...I'd be fine with 33's. Still needs to fit in the garage...
Until you start blowing axles left and right,they get expensive after awhile.Plus the guy that did the work got suckered into $2500 for labor,bet he'll never do another for anywhere close to that price for labor.Heck your looking at $7500 for labor if done by AllJ's.
yeah true.. I knew you'd come back with that.
Fully agree with tj.
I'm considering stuffing these under our KJ...
If you have that kinda cash to just throw around, I know a guy in AZ who could use some thrown his way...
FJ80 on Volvo portals. Portals rule. Not only do you get valuable ground clearance, but the portal box absorbs half the torque that the axle would normally be taking.
I bet that thing floats down the road eek2.gif
When it did exist it had a turbo three cylinder engine and THREE transfercases.... On 44's, ya it floated.....
