A steering box with 47s? “I still drive it on the road,” Robert said when we asked. A full host of PSC components is employed, including PSC’s box, pump, and hydraulic ram. Custom steering arms place the 13⁄4-inch DOM tie rod behind the axle and out of harm’s way. Dana 60s are strong, but every axle has its limits. So it could survive, the front axle was fortified with 5.13 Dana 70 gears with a kit from Jantz Engineering and an ARB Air Locker behind the Crane diff cover with 40-spline, 1.7-inch Moser chromoly axleshafts and Reid Racing knuckles. The three-link suspension works in conjunction with 21⁄2-inch-diameter, 16-inch-travel Fox coilover shocks and a Currie Antirock sway bar.
