Out back a tried-and-true 14-bolt rear axle has been fitted with disc brakes and stuffed with Yukon alloy axleshafts, 5.38:1 gears, and a Detroit Locker. The rear suspension is a simple leaf-spring setup that uses Superlift springs, but it's unique in that the rear of each leaf pack is mounted to the custom rear bumper via Summit Machine Flex Joints. A custom traction bar and a pair of Bilstein piggyback-reservoir shocks help to keep things planted.
