Couch offroad project BAM BAM

How did they make the cummins work? What bolt pattern does the unimog trans use OR do you think they mated the dodge trans to the 'mog case?

How do you think the 'mog running gear would hold up to the extra torque of the cummins?

The SBU has a divorced transmission. Physically dropping the cummins in is not difficult. Another guy is dropping in a C series cummins as well which is a much cooler swap.

The worst part is in the details. Bam bam was cobbled together in a short time frame but the still managed to do a decent enough job.

The tranny can easily handle the 300hp give or take.
