Front-end action is ensured by the Dana 60 axle from a ’78 GM 1-ton truck. Fitted with 5.13 gears and a Detroit Locker, the 35-spline inner and outer axleshafts will keep the big tires turning. The front suspension is stock GM three-leaf, but positioned to move the axle forward 3 inches. The soft springs and longer wheelbase make for a cushy, compliant ride. The Super Swamper TSL tires are 44 inches tall and make for easier steering than Boggers would.
