As far as I understand it, it is a matter of cost. I'm not going to re-read the thread but it looks, due to geographical issues, he can save about $2500 buying tractor tires.

yes, Rockwelles are the most strange axles I had ever seen, I think I cannot find one of those here... He also doesnt use shocks in that jeep, just the springs.

Why don't you use the axles from a tractor?

Even with proper gearing the I6 would have a helluva time turning those! New axles and a V8 or diesel swap!
