Providing 4.5 inches of lift in the front is a set of custom-made Deaver Springs using 12-inch-stroke, nitrogen-charged Bilstein 5150 shock absorbers. There was a great deal of custom work that needed to be done in order to give this vehicle the stability its owners desired. The couple turned to Fat City once again to construct a 1.5-inch chrome-moly tie rod, a 1.5-inch chrome-moly drag link, and a custom steering box to complement the Hi-Steer setup that was made by R.V.M.D. in house. Wagner disc brakes have been installed at all four corners with a Navajo master cylinder. The entire suspension both front and rear was installed by Fat City as were the custom bumpstops and front shackles. The front axle custom-built by Drivetrain Direct uses a Dana 44 housing running 4.88 ring-and-pinion gears and a Detroit Locker. The transfer case is a Dana 300 that uses a 4:1 Tera Low ratio and a larger output shaft.
