I am looking to go with Rocks on my 85 4Runner.
That depends very much on which UniMoGaxle (Model) you are referring too, a 2.5 RW will be significantly stronger than a UMG 401 for example. ...When will people learn that it exists a shitload of different UniMoGaxles :flipoff2:FatA$$ Toyota said:Oh, and I have some people I know that run Unimogs and they say that stock for stock, the Unimogs is a stronger axle, Is this true?
TheRipper said:I don't think a mog axle has as much strenght as a rock honestly...but then again it could depend on how the rock was treated before you got it and how old the shafts are.There are some people here that say they have broke numerous axles and most people I have met in real life have never broke one or have only broke a rear when running rear steer and 53" tires that weigh a few pounds shy of 300lb's and a big motor with lot's of throttle.If you run the toy motor and 42" shaved rockwell's I don't think you will ever have a problem with breakage but maybe the every once in a while freak break.Evrything break's sooner or later we all just want it to be later.I am going to get the reer oversoon standard spline axle shaft's for my rear rock just so I will always know I have one axle to take me home or back to the trailer atleast.They are only like $185 a piece and made from moly..For your weight issuse with a rear and front rock I would say you would add about 875lb's to your axle weight.you would haft to add the tire weight up seperate.If I was running your motor I would run the 42" irok's on a set of 20" rim's to keep that simple.then just shave the rock's and get the ground clearence you need with no problem.The 4.3 liter would be a great mod to get alot more power but not to much where you worry about breakage again.The extra weight is kinda of a good thing because it is all under your rig on the ground so it helps you from turnning over.And also helps with traction.You can also go with milatary tires to help keep the cost down.I got my set that look like brand new for $500 for all 4.To the penut butter thing I would hate to eat penut butter that strong because there would be no teeth left in the mouth... :flipoff2:
