I was just wondering about how much rockwells from a junkyard would cost. Thinking about putting some on my next jeep that will be dedicated for off roading. Would people make fun of me for that? i have seen it done but a friend made fun of me for wanting to put that big of an axle on a little ol' jeep.
Well the plan is a CJ-7 with a 350, Dana 300 transfer case, Rockwell axles, I dont know about a transmission yet. I want to paint it john deere green with all the accesories and wheels john deere yellow. I hope to run 44s but who knows this jeep wont happen for a while just planning everything and dreaming lol. What do yall think???
Have you looked at volvo portals? They can be had w/disc brakes and cable operated lockers, but they are geared realy low. 6 or 7 to 1 I think. And quite doable in a cj.
man your not think the whole idea of a 2 1/2 ton rockwell through. they are geared at 7.17 and the smallest tire you can run with them is a 44 unless you want to crawl everywhere blazing your engine to the very last rpm it has. oh and when you get these please tell me when your on the highway and which highways you will be on. I do not wish to sit in the stop and go traffic that you will be causing. your jeep will be worst than a farm vehicle. oh and after the first week of installing them tell me how many cops have pulled you over and given you a ticket to get your vehicle inspection by an authorized inspection station.
Contact Wolfgang at killeraxles.com . He has mog , volvo and rockwells . They arent cheap if you are going to uswe portals though . And if its still the same in TN as when I lived there he will have no problems getting pulled over ...they dont even have inspection stickers there !
hey kid, how old are you? at least you sound like a child with these unrealistic dreams. but dont get me wrong it is possible. but the reason I say your being so unrealistic is because you haven't actually thought these "plans" through. but seriously if you want something hardcore don't go stupidly overkill b/c right now I don't look up to you for thinking your gonna get rockwells, I look down upon you b/c I think you might come to think about this matter and change you mind for lesser axle and that will be a dana 60 70 or 80. but while you got one of the dana's I will be a hell of alot stronger with my sunray axles. I guess you didn't know it but a 9" center section is actually stronger then those in the dana series. well I wait to you come realistic and thank me for saying all this
