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 and 10Ga. gusseting incorporates a unique design to strengthen both axle tubes, not just the long tube (commonly found in "other" designs). The precision cut and formed components of this setup ensure a hassle-free installation. This kit requires general welding and fabrication skills including welding to the cast center section. This kit is intended for vehicles with at least minor lifts. If using with no lift, check clearances before installing. Not tested on non-US JK's with diesel engines or right hand drive axles.
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
