Axle Details

The 2.5 Ton Rockwell axle, available in steering and solid axle configurations is a bomb-proof axle with many unique features. As standard equipment on Kaiser M35 series 2.5 Ton trucks, Rockwell axles are built to military specifications and, while extremely heavy, they are very well engineered and quite easy to work on. Their signature feature is a top-loading, drop-out style 3rd member that houses large double reduction gears and a pass-through pinion shaft. A 6.72 to 1 overall gear reduction, massive 1.56" diameter axle shafts, plentiful availability, and a healthy aftermarket are making these axles a popular choice for many off-roaders.
