An ARB air locker was stuffed behind an ARB differential cover in the front Dana 30 axle. Lube Lockers keep the gear oil in the differential while inner housing bracing keeps the axle from bending. Scott pounded in the inner axle tubes (making a double-wall axlehousing) himself, at home in the driveway, using a sledgehammer. Scott tells us it was quite an endeavor. A MetalCloak track bar allows for lateral adjustability of the front end, and MetalCloak sway bar disconnects keep the vehicle handling well on the street but allow for full suspension flex when in the dirt.
