Fits Jeep TJ, LJ, XJ, ZJ, plus others. Perfect for when building a Jeepspeed style vehicle.
Rusty's once again delivers the goods to home fabricators wanting to bring a professional look to their custom suspension projects! Rusty's Dana 30 / Dana 44 front axle truss provides a clean and easy way to build your own triangulated four-link suspension, or simply gusset the axle housing for additional strength during those occasional airborne moments.
The axle truss starts with 1/4" thick steel plate that has been laser-cut, keyed, and precision-formed for an exact fit. The truss spans the cast iron differential housing and provides a sturdy, flat place to add a mount for a suspension link to the top of the differential. Designed to fit Dana 30 and Dana 44 axle tubes, the truss can also be radiused and clearanced slightly to fit other axle tubes. The main body of the truss ships fully welded but the kit includes a link mount that is shipped loose. This allows the position of the link mount to be "dialed in" once the axle is under the Jeep. Once positioned, it can be fully welded into place. A second upper link mount is also supplied that is mounted to the "long side" axle tube. These link mounts are also constructed of 1/4" thick laser-cut steel and feature 2" inner spacing, which is standard width for a TJ , XJ and ZJ-style bushings. This truss is the perfect solution for building a vehicle for Jeepspeed racing or just wanting to get out a little crazy out on the trail. It does require a custom control arm that would have upper control arm bushing or 2 inch flex joints at both ends, very similar to the lower control arms.
This truss design will require custom control arms.
Please note that welding and fabrication skills are required for installation.
