More military goodness. The front Rockwell 2 1/2-ton is spun by a custom driveshaft and houses 6.72:1s and locker by Lincoln; full hydro steering helps make turning the 46-inch Mickey T Baja Claws on 18x15 Real Wheels a lot easier. Above the deuce-and-a-half rests a dropped (via a custom subframe) four-link suspension incorporating 8-inch Fabtech Super Duty coils, extended hydraulic 'stops and a Pro Comp shock at each corner. A 3-inch body lift lends a bit more clearance for the Claws.
