The front axle is an elusive ’79 Ford Dana 60 with a high-pinion centersection and kingpin knuckles. The axle uses factory parts and 4.10 gears with a welded carrier. “It isn’t the best way to do it, but it is cheap,” Justin confessed. The axle was left full width, and kingpin steering arms from Parts Mike were used that have a deep offset. This is intended to clear Hummer rims with extreme backspacing, but Justin found that the arms allowed him to retain the stock Grand Wagoneer tie rod and drag link.
