The Bronco's suspension comprises a torque-arm-style single-link/Deaver coil arrangement that's tied together by a trick "sliding" triangulated wishbone that runs off a custom transfer-case skidplate. Beneath the setup rests a Dana 70 taken from a 1-ton Dodge truck that's engaged via a square driveshaft and fortified with a Detroit Locker, 5.86:1 ring-and-pinions, and Alloy USA axleshafts running Longfield U-joints. The stock Dodge disc brakes have been retained, all the better to stop the fully hydro-steered 380/85R24 (49-inch-tall) Mitas radial RDs mounted on 24x10 steel rims.
