    Crawler Gears for 1985 Mk160 (MQ) Station wagon

    Hi Everyone

    I have an ancient one that is still going strong.
    It is a 1985 model with the SD33 turbo diesel. It is purely mechanical, even the fuel pump is mechanical.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to source low range (crawler) gears for it?

    Highly doubt it, but I’m usually wrong too :-(
    Mark’s do Portal Axles that could be of interest? Reduction could possibly be MQ achieved planetary I think that’s how they work and super cheap too!
    Jokes aside, an old school portal lifted MQ out there would be Legendary

    Thanks, but I guess portal axles would not be super cheap. I think I may be slow on the sarcasm there.
    I suspect in terms of turning speed, portal axles would achieve the same as slower diff ratios. I.e. everything is slower, including highway speed, needing higher revs.
