I wonder what gears he has in the rear of that xj. Anyone have a guess as to what axles are under it?

Looks like a Rockwell in the rear. Front kind of does cant tell really though.

Those look like 52" Michelins or 47" they make them in both IIRC.

Nice though good fab work to make those axles work if its done right.

they're def. not rockwells on that xj. they are portal axles. and i'm not up to speed on all of the types, but i think they're some old unimog or volvo portals.

Nice find broncofire. Did you see it in person or just find the pics somewhere? It would look bad*** if it had a good body.

It looks exactly the way a jeep with those tires should look... well used.

haha, I saw that out in York on Sunday...
I was underneath the thing looking at it, and I believe they are from a 'mog.

well used for sure, flopped on one side at least, and the back right door welded shut.

Anyone notice the in-tact birds nest on top of the drivers side leaf spring?
