Out back is a 14-bolt axle and it has a Detroit Locker; Yukon 4.10:1 gearing; a Ruff Stuff Specialties diff cover; DIY4X Guardsman U-joint and yoke guard; and Off Road Design disc brake conversion. The rear suspension found under the vehicle in these photos was temporary. “I was in the process of designing a triangulated four-link system, but I threw it back together to help support friends racing at the ’12 KOH race,” Hays says. The suspension uses 64-inch Superlift leaf springs; custom spring hangers and shackles; and 2.5-inch F-O-A 16-inch-travel remote-reservoir shock absorbers.
