Helping to protect the belly of the beast is a large skidplate made from 1⁄4-inch-thick steel. Shielded by the skidplate is an Atlas two-speed transfer case with 3.8:1 low-range ratio, which gives the big Suburban excellent crawlability for slow-speed trails like the Rubicon. Sprouting from the ’case are a pair of custom driveshafts. The front ’shaft is 1350 CV-equipped and both ’shafts are fitted with 1350 U-joints.
