Rear Axle

When photographed, the rearend was similar to the front: a stock 32-spline FJ100 Toyota piece waiting to be swapped out for a Rock Logic-built Dana 60. The rear three-link suspension also utilizes Fox 16-inch-travel air shocks along with a beefy center torque arm to keep the axle from over-rotating under load. Note the clean Yukon driveline, sparkling Atlas transfer case, and Tsuda-fabbed exhaust-by the time you see this rig at the 2007 UROC series, that undercarriage will likely be dirtier than what you see here. Note also the Greddy radiator at the top of this photo, which was relocated behind the driver seat in case the Cruiser needs improved airflow, and to protect against big water.
