4 of 8
The front suspension is a custom setup that Aros designed. It consists of Rancho 6-inch-lift leaf springs, an Off Road Design Zero Rate kit, 3-inch-longer front spring mounts, lengthened rear shackles, and Rancho RS5000 shocks. The axle is a Boyce Equipment-sourced, ex-military Dana 60 that sports a traction-enhancing Detroit Locker and 4.88:1 gears to offset the large 42-inch tires. And to help point the big meats, there’s a hydro-assist steering system that includes a variety of PSC components including the steering box, pump, reservoir, drop pitman arm, and hydraulic ram. Finally, there’s an Off Road Design crossover steering system to improve the steering geometry.
