Stock Vs Project

5 of 6
While out on this photo shoot we compared Ben's red Chevy to our own IFS Red Sled project. His 15 inches of front wheel travel laughs at our 5 or 6, but his 1/2-ton front Dana 44 is probably as strong as our 3/4-ton IFS axle (especially now that we run aftermarket half-shafts). We probably have an inch or two more ground clearance with our IFS, but are sure his iron-clad Dana 44 could take more abuse than our aluminum IFS housing. Unfortunately, Dirt Trix no longer builds custom long-travel solid-axle conversions, but check out "Ditch That IFS" elsewhere in this issue for companies that do.
