Front Dana 60

Axles are easy; we’d want a full-width GM Dana 60 front with a three-link suspension, coilovers (or air shocks), and we’d probably run full-hydraulic steering with a ram from The Off-Road Connection. We’d also toss on a couple of universal Currie Antirock sway bars front and rear to aid stability. Out back a Dana 60 would fit the bill, or perhaps a shaved GM 14-bolt with disc brakes and a triangulated four-link on some 4- to 6-inch-lift coils and some high-quality shocks. The full-width axles would help keep the 40- to 42-inch tires out of what sheetmetal is left. We’d run 5.13 gears and Detroit Locker in the front and a spool out back.
