We think the back of Eric's Jeep is where his talent really shows. The 14-bolt rear, stuffed with a Detroit Locker and 5.13 gears, is held in place via a three-link suspension with an upper triangle featuring 1 1/4-inch spherical bearing rod ends. Taking the brunt of the rear's light weight are Atlas quarter-elliptic springs attached to the axle with rod ends and brackets that allow the axle to better pivot on the springs.
