IC= instant center Mike.
I still never heard of AS except around a port-a-john.

Anyway, the wheel wells have been done to accomodate 9x30 tires.
Lakewood adjustable bars and air bags, along with fully adjustable QA-1 shocks.

Control arms are stock FoMoCo.

Considering for it to stay in the same class it would have to weigh exactly the same, probably not much faster, if any.
