Random Find

Maybe this should go in classifieds, but I think it's more of an interest piece:







































Not really shown is the passenger foot well is level with the seat bottom- in other words the passenger would be hugging their knees...

It's you!

Seriously, you look good in it.

And you bought it, right?

Re: Random Find

A little hard to tell from the pics, but looks like portal axles. Go ahead and buy it and put the axles under your SMB.

They are for sure. But I think a little light for the vans. Unless... you put both in the back and did something like this:

Pretty good bet you'd be the only kid on the block with a pink Unimog...

Re: Random Find

Unimog axles are portals and are designed for handling some serious weight, those things are real work trucks. They're just not designed for much power. The stock six cylinder gas engine in there probably makes 80 Hp or so. Speedy they are not, incredibly capable off-road they certainly are.

If you're looking for help with your sour grapes, I suspect it's pretty loud driving that thing too.
