looks like a 60 on U1300s

anyways, i was just looking, and i dont think he will get full lock, but he prolly still has more turning angle than a stock cruiser

Wow that is a monster. How do air bags flex when they are aired up like that?

Once again, if I recall right, the suspension is set up for mostly droop, so they don't need to flex up very much, but that's tunable by adding air, and if it's plumbed right, can be aired up or down on the fly. Peter's pretty sick, I'd expect him to have gone that route...

WOW, It looks mean

It looks alot different than it did when I had to weld it back together on Rubithon a couple years ago. That was a fun trip.

Hey, that truck looks exactly like mine! Oh, wait.

So, those are indeed, 16.00R20 Michelins. (53")
Those are Unimog 406 axles (a front and a rear, so no rear steer).
I am at about 30 degrees of steering. I measured a stock LC at 28 Degrees. That's worked out much better than I had hoped.
Steering is full hydraulic.
Engine is a Toy 3.4L 3B with aftermarket Turbo est. 140HP/220lb-ft
Tranny is a H41. Tcase is 203/205
Gearing in the axles is 4.1 diffs, with 2.2 portal, for 9.075:1 in the axles.
Total crawl ration is 176:1
Total Groud Clearance to the lowest part of the diff is 23.5". To the bottom of the axle tube is 25".
Oh, and get this... how much lift did I need to fit those tires?... would you believe a grand total of 1.5" body lift? That's not exactly true, as there is about 5" of lift from the portal hubs, but that 6.5" is it. Even though the hood line is pretty much at eye level, the truck actually looks positively slammed when it is at ride height. The tires are 65% of the height of the truck!

Oh, and an answer to another question... the air bags suck when aired up. They droop nicely, which is what I want them for - the rig has only about 4" of compression at each wheel (plus whatever the 18" of sidewall will allow me) to soak up the bumps, but almost 16" of droop.

How does it all work... I don't know. It's driven a total of aprox 1meter so far. Seemed to work OK for that trip. I hope to get it out of the shop tomorrow for a very preliminary shake down. Perhaps a first trail test run next weekend.

And to Rock Hugger... I have fond memories of your welding assistance. I have my own Ready Welder now, so hopefully I can be a little more self repairing. This truck is a result of that Trip on the 'Con back in 2000, and the damage it suffered back then..

Peter, let me know when you go for that trial run.
I'll come.
