There is an oil company selling complete unimogs, they took off the engines and transmission from them.

How good or bad is the idea of swaping mog axles with a 4 link on a cj7? Driveline issues? whats the r&p and reduction on them? out of a 404 and 414 or 416..

thanks!

mogs have gear reduced hubs, i think somehwere around 2:1 which means that your drivelines have to spin backwards. mog drivelines are like torque tubes and are sealed completely. major pain in the ass to work on but pretty beefy! a couple of years ago there was a guy from germany trying to get into the TTC with an early 80's cj7 and mog axles in it. you might want to do a search on mog parts using google or another search engine and try to locate a guy named michael in redwood city, ca 94062. he sells mogs and parts. if you have no luck e-mail me and i'll try to get his number for ya.
good luck, i'd really dig seing that rig when it's on the rocks. <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0">

I was on the mog mail list for a while and from what they said the axles are an utter kick in the balls to work on but worth the clearance. Parts are a kick in the teeth too for their prices and availability. From what I heard from those dudes...

I saw that yellow Jeep at Dave Hickman's Yard during our 2nd annual meeting and it kicks ass!

Walked trough the yard with ease, and the rear steering makes it look easy!

I got a lot of pictures of it somewhere. I couldnt remember if he had 9" housings and mog ends on them, they didnt seem to be that wide.

A friend has mog axles and had to do custom wheels to fit 16.5" tires.

Only concern with them on my mind, as you mention is the clearence under the engine and with the rear shaft. For a 110" wheelbase seems to be doable.

Any more comments are appreciated. I still think im going to give them a try...

JBs Offroad has built a few rigs using mog axles. He is somewhere in the south, near Tellico. He built Bob Hazels rig. Very nice guy, I'm sure he could fill you in. I would say buy the mog, and then put in a mog motor back in! They are one of the neatest things around, and the ROOM for beer is unbeatable!
