This heavy duty and light weight truss system and armor is designed to take serious abuse and reinforce your front Dana 44 JK axle. The 1/4" thick truss top incorporates a unique design to strengthen both the axle and provide a low profile link mounting surface. The base truss itself spans about 26.5 inches across the center of your axle. Specifically designed for the JK 44 axle. Trimming required for fitment on other centered rear Dana 44 axles. The Jeep JK Rear Dana 44 has a centered differential housing that measures approx. 16. 375" and the axle tube diameter is 3.25 inches. Other Dana 44s will measure differently and have differing axle tube diameters. Please ensure your axle meets these dimensions prior to ordering. This kit requires general welding and fabrication skills.
Artec Industries is based in Salt Lake City, Utah, but its origins are an American success story based in Tucscon, Arizona. The owner, Artie Nuttall, married into a family of off-roaders who quickly infected him with their enthusiasm. So much so that Nuttall took a welding class at a community college so that he could complete DIY axle swaps on his rig in his garage. Turns out he had a talent for welding and in 2010 Artie successfully marketed a line of battery mounts. From there, Artec Welding turned into Artec Industries and though the product line and success grew, Nuttall's attention to craftsmanship and quality never wavered. Shop Artec Industries Now
