Out back is a custom axle that uses a late-’80s Toyota IFS-width rear housing and a late-’90s Toyota V-6-application third member. The axle has 5.29 gears, welded spider gears, and disc brakes utilizing Chevy Monte Carlo components. Suspending the rear of the truck are 56-inch-long Marlin Crawler 5-inch-lift springs and a pair of Bilstein 5125 14-inch-travel shocks reside at each wheel. Also visible in this photo is the JAZ 32-gallon fuel cell, which sits in a custom mount.
