It is. Everything is Ford 9 inch except the 3rd member and the axles.The whole rear end looks like a 9” Ford housing to me.
I never said that it was bad, it's just a ford rear and it does not look right in a mopar especially with a mopar 8 3/4 center
I would challenge anyone to tell the difference under the car at 20 feet away. That's the stupidest thing I ever heard. It's metal formed into a usable shape bolted to more metal to make more metal move. It doesn't make a rat's *** difference what it is.
I seen the difference the first time I seen the rear of the car, people aren't as clueless as you think, and for me I want to keep my mopar a mopar not a pile of misc parts. But that's just me.
It's not about people bein clueless man. That's not how I meant it. Sure, you can tell the difference.....at least "we" can. But we're not talking about cars here that it "matters" about. If it's one where it needs to be or should be a Mopar unit, fine. 90% of Mopars on the street aren't numbers cars, plus the Ford 9" is not just "arguably" stronger, it's a LOT stronger, so it's an upgrade all the way around. Regardless of your feelings about Mopar stuff. None of the Mopar units have that rear pinion bearing support. That makes a pretty big difference.
I know the 9" is stronger and I don't believe any other rear ends have that pinion support bearing, but what I don't understand is why would anybody put a 8 3/4 in a 9" housing ? If you are going to have a ford 9" housing ford brakes why not just use a 9" center. It just makes no sense to me. I think the guys at Moser are morons for doing that.
For the simplicity of production. That's all there is to it. It's a cost cutting measure. From that standpoint it's a smart one.
Not for $4000 that he said he paid for it
Oh wait, it's a great deal and $ maker for Moser
I’m not sure that that’s possible. The 9” Ford has a oval shaped 3rd member and the 8-3/4 Mopar is round so how would you even put one together?It is. Everything is Ford 9 inch except the 3rd member and the axles.
I dont care which one is better, for the money he paid give him what he ordered. Stupid pricks.
