Up front is a custom three-link coil-spring suspension. The link bars are made from stout 2-inch, solid cold-rolled steel and each end has 3/4-inch chromoly spherical rod ends. The suspension also includes two Rancho RS 5000 shocks at each wheel, poly bumpstops, and a pair of Mac's limiting straps mounted at the same points. The suspension locates a 2 1/2-ton Rockwell axle with Ouverson Engineering Ultra Locker, Boyce pinion-brake kit, and a custom pinion-brake guard. The Boyce hydraulic steering has its own cooler.
