|Rawkon||those torque tubes are a pain in the ass. I had to rebuild one a few months ago. everything is crazy heavy.|
|10-27-2009 05:37 PM|
Full width is too wide. The tires must be covered by the flares over here. And that wide flares would lok ugly.
No my friends use Mercedes G control arms with a G track bar.

|AzTJ||Nico - is your friend using the torque tube from the Mog with a track bar?|
|10-26-2009 06:46 PM|
shouldnt be too hard. the 416 doka has disc all the way around, 2 calipers per wheel upfront and 1 caliper per wheel in the back.
why not leave them full width???
|10-26-2009 03:04 PM|
I already bought them.
Now I have to shorten them and I also need disk brakes. I want to make that street legal.

|Rawkon||that makes sence. pretty cool work hes doing. so Nico when are you gonna be running portals????|
|10-26-2009 12:43 PM|
|nicolas-eric||Stock Unimog axles are wider. My friends shortened them.|
|10-26-2009 12:02 PM|
thats a pretty sweet conversion, those axles seem pretty narrow for a mog axle. are they out of the 404's? how does he not have crazy axle wrap being rear coil??
heres a mog ive been working on for years now.
doka 416 on 46s
we were just at mogfest in calico a couple weeks ago.

|jgano23||nico, pick me up a set and ship 'em to me|

With the same tire size they would have about 9-10" more ground clearance than my D3/D44 combo.
The portals have a 2:1 reduction. And the have diffs something between 3:1 and 4:1.
They flex more than another friends TJ with a 5.5" RE longarm suspension.
Over here you find these axles very often in junkyards.
|10-26-2009 10:28 AM|
I thought the offset clearance gain from the portal would be more significant. Looks like it's just a couple of inches.
Does the portal reduce the gearing still further, or are they straight-across ratio gears?
The springs look really far in-board, and they look really short. How far can this flex?
Not complaining - I like Unimogs a lot. They're just super expensive over here.

No only the front axle is steeable. But there are some people that install two Unimog front Axles on a Jeep.
These axles have gears around 6:1-8:1 and air lockers.
The Unimogs have stock tractor tires that are 44-48" high. I never heard of a boken axle. They ar eway stronger than all Dana axles that are available.
And compared to a D60 they have 7-8" more ground clearance.

|jgano23||that is a wicked set of axles. are they 4 wheel steer?|
|10-25-2009 10:27 PM|
|jdhallissey||WOW. Yea send me 2 pairs then and we call it even|
|10-25-2009 10:22 PM|
|nicolas-eric||Aou find them here in neary every junkyard for 600-800$ a pair.|
|10-25-2009 10:19 PM|
|jdhallissey||Those are cool. I want a set. Trade ya my d-44's for a set.|

Unimog Portal Axles
I just wanted to show some pics of my friends Unimog portal axle conversions. That are the same axles that I bought some weeks ago.
