This Dana 30 was beefed for LaFortune by Sierra Truck & Auto and had been used in his last JeepSpeed truck. The crew is using the 4WD axle for the initial mock-up to make sure nothing interferes with the front driveshaft; the 2WD axle won't have those clearance issues. LaFortune has also spoken with Currie Enterprises about building a custom, 8-inch 4WD front axle that will be much stronger than a built Dana 30 or even a 44. The new axle will be added to the truck as a running change during the season.
