What a deal for someone at $107 with 22 hrs left. I wonder what the gov paid for that thing? Did you check the other pics? He has a funky looking Heep too.

Here's a couple shots of the axles, which he lists as made by ZF.. They make good stuff (Most of the Germans automakers user thier tranny's)

Good luck finding parts if you broke these babies... Sorta the same boat as Unimog axles (but not portal axles like the 'Mogs are)- very strong but it's not like a Toyota or Chevy where you can go down to a P&P and grab some spare shafts...

Couple of shots of the axles:



Check out that suspension! (1st picture)Rubber body-mount bushings between the axle and the frame. So much for whoever said this thig could be a crawler! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> </font>

Those are Timken (sp?) style load springs, not body bushings. Still, it would take a helluva lot of work to make this streetable.

Why would you even try? Yank those axles and put them under something else and you are SET <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Those axles look very similar to the ones on the heavy forlklift I was driving today. Spares parts may not be hard to find, then again, how many heavy forklifts are there in the boneyards?
