For those of you who missed the triumphant return of Project SuperBurb back in January 2009, listen up. This month, our only editor-owned full-size SUV project gets back on track with a new front axle assembly courtesy of our friends at Currie Enterprises. What better way to reconfirm our dedication to this particular buildup than to illustrate where the factory fell short in terms of brute strength: the front axle. And in keeping with the theme of this issue, axle-related tech, we thought it would be cool to show you how the legendary Currie Iron Jock 60 is built. We'll uncover a whole assortment of trick upgrades that should, in theory, provide our three-door Suburban with a bombproof front end that'll last for years to come. Check it out.

Work in progress: Our '72 Suburban recently received a set of 35-inch Toyo Open Country M/T tires mounted to 17-inch Raceline beadlock wheels. Replacing the factory Dana 44 with a trail-tested Dana 60 was high on our priority list.
