"Throttle down and power up it" has got to be Bill Sturgess' motto. With a 4.7L stroker engine he sure has the power on tap to pull that motto off. A pair of Currie 9-inch axles with ARB Air Lockers and 4.56 gears handle the torque that the 5.0:1 Atlas II dishes out. Rubicon Express got tapped for the suspension in the form of a 5-inch long-arm lift that was customized with a three-link rear. A set of 36-inch Super Swamper Irocs put all that power to the ground. A tubular front bumper with a Warn winch and custom tubular fenders front and rear fend off any obstacle that gets too close.
