Up front is an IFS that uses a combination of military M561 Gama Goat 6x6 parts and custom parts. The center differential is a limited slip-equipped Gama Goat differential while the axleshafts are custom with larger-than-stock U-joints. The Gama Goat steering knuckles have been modified to accept custom spindles with custom stub shafts along with Speedway Engineering Wide 5 hubs. The suspension utilizes air springs and a Fox remote-reservoir shock at each corner. The springs are individually controllable from the cab and the CJ’s tube frame acts as an air tank, fed by an engine-driven modified air conditioning compressor. The setup uses an inboard braking system consisting of 12-inch-diameter Wilwood disc brakes and Wilwood four-piston calipers. The big 46-inch tires are pointed via a crossover steering system that includes a Cadillac steering box and a high-performance pump.
