    Assuming they are hydaulics, what do you do when driving over rocks? I've heard of a hydraulic setup on a jeep before, but dont understand what happens as you drive. The cylinder is going to hold the axle in that position, so wouldn't you have to adjust your axle constantly to keep the tires on the ground, since the setup doesn't give slack like springs to droop and stuff????

    Forced articulation as you guessed it. It is running like that all the time. Just when he fires up the hydraulics to use it.

    Sounds like he might have some binding going on, when he backs up you hear pop, pop, pop

    kinda neat I guess otherwise
