Randy Ball gave us a lift from time to time in his very capable '04 Wrangler Rubicon. He left the engine, transmission, and transfer case alone. He even still runs the front Dana 44 with the stock air locker and just swapped in 4.88 gears to help turn the 36-inch IROKs bolted to Champion beadlocks. Out back, a Currie-built Ford 9-inch is stuffed with an ARB Air Locker and matching 4.88 gears. A 7-inch wheelbase stretch, Rockland roll cage, and Mastercraft seats make this Jeep comfortable and stable on any obstacle we encountered.
