This heavy duty truss system is designed to take serious abuse and reinforce your entire axle while also providing a flat surface to mount your upper links. The 3/8" thick truss top and 1/4" thick gussets incorporates a unique design to strengthen both the axle and the link mounting surface. Truss is low profile allowing link joints to be mounted with ideal geometry, about 8 inches from the axle centerline. Truss spans entire length of axle for complete reinforcement of the axle tubes, not just for mounting links. The DRW truss is just under 46-1/8". This kit includes the Artec Industries 14 bolt Pinion Guard and Bridge is designed to keep your vulnerable pinion out of the rocks and in one piece. CNC cut from 3/8" thick mild steel, this guard is meant to take the worst you and the rocks can dish out. 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
