Wfo Skidplate

On each side of the WFO skidplate, you can see the square tube angled and run down each framerail after the factory boxing (of the frame) stopped. This gives a foundation to build a subframe off of, which would hold the 2-inch (0.250 wall) suspension links that control the front Dana 60 axle. The axle is packed with 7.17 gears around an ARB locker spinning 35-spline axleshafts. Rotational power comes down the drivetrain from Tom Wood’s driveshafts that supply power from an Offroad Design NP203/NP205 double transfer case package. In front of the doubler setup is an NV4500 five-speed transmission that was swapped in place of the weaker stock NV3550.
