To survive with 42-inch sticky compound Iroks, the kingpin Dana 60 was upgraded with a full spool, Yukon 35-spline chromoly axleshafts, Longfield U-joints, and Warn premium locking hubs. The front suspension is simple and functional with 52-inch Pro Comp 2-inch lift springs originally intended for use on the rear of the Chevy. They are mounted on DIY4X hangers and are used in conjunction with Fox 2-inch-diameter, 14-inch-travel shocks. Steering is handled by a Saginaw box from a 2WD truck that was tapped for hydraulic assist. This box allows for crossover steering (as opposed to the factory push-pull configuration) and is used in conjunction with OTT Industries steering arms. Note how the PSC ram is mounted to the Great Lakes Off Road diff cover up high and out of harm’s way.
