Crawlers for a 404 are about 1500 uswas ready to jump in, but there seems to be an issue with the gearing, the guy said there are no crawler gears on firetrucks? can anyone confirm this.
said it's worth about 1500 and can be installed
Right - on a 404 you will have a 6 speed trannyso all it hase is high and low range then
I'm buying one mostly for offroading, hence all the questions
I thought my crawler set was completely gone the first time I used them, as I couldn't tell the truck was moving until I looked out the window at the tire and saw it moving barely.BTW- for offroading.... you won't need the bolt on crawler box for years. Learn to wheel the 404 w/out one . You will outwheel most everyone around you still too. The existing granny lows in a mog is significantly lower than a domestic "granny" gear. There is little to no comparison to a domestic truck granny.
If you want a comparison; go sit on an old farm' tractor, put it in lowest gear; take a break- leave it in gear ideling on down the trail; alone on its own, while you eat. When your done, pack up. jog a hundred feet back to the tractor still in low range and idling along and hop back on. Mog won't be much different.
It's only been within the last few years anyone was using a crawlerbox for hardcore Mog offroading. Not sure why... maybe they felt you didn't need one? Maybe it was cause they have been said to be weak so many didnt go that way out of fear of just shreading them?
So seriously... get a mog..... go wheel it. It will be long time; if ever, before you'll come across obsticles that can only be made if you had added a crawlerbox.
