    Steering column might be the same deal for sag swaps, but no info yet on pricing. My cheapy Summit setup was > $100 and left much to be desired quality and fit/finish compared to the Roxor unit.

    This Roxor is going to be the best thing to ever happen for old Jeeps. New parts for old Junk to keep it running. Can't wait to get my hands on one when some yuppie rolls one and I can pick it up cheap.

    The powertrain in a Willys Pickup would be a really really REALLY awesome rig.

    The front axle is gonna be a hot ticket item. The seats and toolbox/seat mount things are both decent, non-branded and cheap. The tcase will likely be a hot ticket item for motor/trans swappers.

    I agree, and so far it seems like new part prices are sane.

    Dunno for certain but sure look like they will be close. The grill may mess that up.

    It’s super cool, but I’ve been itching bad for another diesel rig for years. Crawl ratio isn’t super impressive, somewhere around 33:1, but the diesel mostly makes up for that. I mostly put around trails in 2HI in 2nd gear since you don’t need to touch the throttle much. The grunt is really impressive. Chassis-wise, it’s like a YJ meets early 6.

    This rig will likely replace my TJ, not my ‘57. Original swagger is unbeatable.

    I saw a gal driving a roxor the other day and the smile on her face tells me everything I need to know.

    I hope it's gonna splash over some of the flatty cool onto our chassis, which is good cuz they're under-loved. Once people can get 'a new one', I think it'll generate hype but also get plenty of people wanting 'the original'. Hopefully those new people chose restore/preserve/modest mod over heavy mod and keep awesome old iron putting useful hours in.

    While looking at the roxor today I did notice there are compartments under the seats. Didnt see how the tracks were connected, but they were adjustable. You may have to fab something up

    I’ll bet your right. I’m good with that. Didn’t show tracks on the parts list but maybe I can order them when I get to the dealer.

    Rumor has it that ARB is looking at doing a 19 spline Air Locker to fit the Roxor axles also. ;) Which also means if you have a 19 spline rear end still, there could be a new locker option again soon.

    I really believe these vehicles may help to extend the service life of many old Jeeps another 50 years. Best thing to come along to a Jeep since the Buick v6 was added in 66.

    Now if OX would come out with a 19 spline locker for it. We will be set.
