The stock rear axle was swapped out with a GM Corporate 14-bolt and fit with a 4.56 gearset and a Detroit Locker for traction. The 4-inch-lift Skyjacker Softride leaf springs were left in the spring-under position. Glen left the heavy-duty geardriven Dana 300 transfer case in place since they are extremely stout and dependable. The low-range gearing on this transfer case is 2.62:1 and the high is 1.00:1, which is more than adequate for this old Scrambler and the type of terrain it will see.
