Independent suspension all around was a Euro trademark. The axlehousings are all mounted to a center tube that houses the driveshaft and provides a backbone. At the back, it’s attached to the main towing pintle. A type of swing axle is used, with portals on the end. The diffs have a 2.85:1 ratio while the ports are 2.27:1 for 6.47:1. T-case low range is 1.69:1 and the transmission has a 5.33:1 First gear ratio. Crawl ratio is almost 60:1. Hydraulically actuated mechanical lockers provide true six-wheel traction. Note how the front towing point is attached to the central tube and forms a very heavy skid/protector for the steering.
