Innovation generally comes from places where someone tried to do something that others said couldn’t, or wouldn’t, work. We like examples of vehicles that are different and bend the rules of what others say won’t work. One longtime misled belief is that independent suspension can’t work in rockcrawling. Pat Gremillion is an off-road legend, and he used Hummer H1 parts to build an independently suspended Jeep rockcrawler that we can attest works well. Now, having said that, Gremillion’s suspension is not exactly simple, and while most could duplicate the suspension, it would probably be much easier to stick to solid axles and link suspension for your next rockcrawler.
