Front Rockwell Axle

3 of 46
Underneath the front of the rig is an Ouverson-shafted 21/2-ton Rockwell axle and it has been fitted with a Detroit Locker. The big axle is located by a four-link system that uses aluminum links. The uppers are made from 6061 material and the lowers are made from 7075 material. Each of the links is fitted with EMF spherical rod ends. The suspension consists of King 2.5-inch remote-reservoir coilovers, 4-inch-travel King bumpstops, and a pair of custom-made limiting straps to keep the suspension from overextending at full droop. The big ag tires are pointed via hydraulic steering with a PSC ram and they’re reigned in via a pinion brake that includes an off-the-shelf rotor and Wilwood four-piston caliper.
