Opinions On Tractor Tires And Axles
Well, our neighboor has some old tractors from the previous owner of the house that was a 99 year old farmer. There are a ton of old tractors sitting out there taking up space. I asked him how much he wants for some tires, and he said that I can have anything I want off of them! Well, I figure I might as well put some of those heavy duty pieces of art to work, right? Especially since I can get all this stuff for FREE! [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
So, my question is, what do you guys think of running tractor axles and tires on my Jeep? Of course, it will be ONLY for trailriding, and nothing else. What kind of power train would I need to move this sucker? I have a 350 and TH350 that I would like to use, and have an NP203 coming my way. Would that be able to move the axles and tires? I would use it for some mud bogs, trailriding, and just some field bombing on our property. I know I would have to have a custom driveshaft made for this. Any thoughts on this setup? I know that some people have done this before, but can't find any links that give drivetrain specs. Thanks guys!
