Back to article View Gallery
7 of 8
Out back rests a matching 404 Unimog axle that sports an end ratio of 7.56. With the Ford ZF five-speed transmission and four-speed Atlas transfer case, Jon has serious gearing options for a variety of terrain. To control the Unimog's factory air-actuated lockers, Jon fabricated a set of axle-mounted actuators. In additional to the selectable lockers, he gains even more vehicle control with the electronically controlled cutting brakes on the rear axle.
