Would a 1946 CJ2a work for a swap?
& the 2020's will COME stock with 5.38's Flash the ECU, & I bet it'd be sooooo perfectI was in the same spot, except my '57 is rough, so the Roxor is actually a cheaper route to get me where I wanted to be (body cleanup, diesel, yj springs, swing pedals, overdrive, saginaw, etc). Sadly, I had already cut up my '57 a little, but it was not a great restore candidate anyway.
A killer mod for the Roxor will be a gear-reducer/underdrive that bolts to the PTO cover on the "Spicer18" like the WARN overdrive does. Even if 1.5:1, it will be awesome. That said, with the diesel, 4LO is already rather hilarious.
Except every SWB Jeep made from 1941 to 1981. Mahindra has a goldmine in that front axle.That Mahindra front axle sucks, way too short and the spring perches won’t fit anything
You seem to be missing the fact that the springs are different widths, and won’t bolt on the Roxor. If yj springs would fit in the Roxor a candy ass lift wouldn’t cost $1600, and there have been a ton of yj/cj7 swaps into cj5’s, nobody ever swaps a cj 5 axle into anything because they are so narrow. So a I’ll reiterate again, the factory axles are too narrow, they are offset in the rear, they have weak ass 19 spline axles, and they suck for building on. You can buy a set of built axles as cheap as you can outfit a set of Roxor axles. Mahindra did well in their design process, there’s just not much to work with as far as axle upgrades go without spending a ton of money.Except every SWB Jeep made from 1941 to 1981.

YJ springs are a highly sought after swap on any thick spring Willys and early AMC era Jeep, and the Roxor front axle comes ready to rock, perfect width, and hub matched.
