The front axle is a Currie Iron Jock fitted with an ARB Air Locker, 5.38 gears, 35-spline chromoly axleshafts, and Wilwood brakes and six-lug unit bearings on the ball joint knuckles. Steering is handled by a PSC box and hydraulic ram that are connected to the 11⁄2-inch 0.250-wall DOM draglink and tie rod with 7⁄8-inch QA1 rod ends in TIG-welded tube inserts. We aren’t sure why there is not more aftermarket support for Colorados and Canyons, leaving custom fabrication as the only option. Nate’s Precision crafted 1⁄2-inch 6061-T6 aluminum skidplates for the radiator, engine, transmission, transfer case, and factory fuel tank.
