Up front is a Mopar/Dynatrac/AxleTech International Motorsports (AIM) ProRock 44-based portal axle assembly and it is fitted with an ARB Air Locker, 4.10:1 ratio gears, and dual Wilwood brake calipers at each wheel. When factored with the 1.5:1 gear reduction of the portal ends the axle has a 6:15:1 final drive ratio. The suspension utilizes King remote-reservoir coilover shocks, JK-application standard-length Teraflex control arms and forged dual-rate S/T sway bar. Steering modifications include a Wrangler right-hand-drive steering box rotated 180 degrees and reattached to the steering shaft with a Wizard Fabrication Steer Clear offset steering coupler. It’s also worth noting that the Wrangler brake master cylinder/booster assembly was rotated 180 degrees and positioned under the floor of the truck.
