How Aaron’s Rig Has Transformed

Since using Barnes’ custom 4X4 parts, Aaron has seen a lot of improvement:

The four link front is way better than leaf springs. I have way more suspension travel and I don’t break center pins anymore. I was able to push my front 60 another 4" forward for a way better approach angle, and I was able to lower the front end for a lower center of gravity.”
