The front axle is a stout Dynatrac-prepped J8 Dana 44. Compared to a standard JK Dana 44, the J8 Dana 44 has larger brake rotors, larger brake calipers, and thicker-walled axletubes, among other things. Dynatrac fit this axle with a number of mods including a Burnsville Off Road Rockproof Axle Upgrade Kit, an ARB Air Locker, and 5.38:1 gears. The suspension and steering are stock, but a Bilstein steering stabilizer and shocks were added.
