Front Axle Truss for TJ, LJ, ZJ

This heavy duty and light weight truss system is designed to take serious abuse and reinforce your front Dana 30 or Dana 44 TJ/LJ axle. The 1/4" thick truss top and 10Ga. gusseting incorporates a unique design to strengthen both axle tubes, not just the long tube. The precision cut and formed components of this setup ensure a hassle-free installation. Not only do we offer a truss, but you can also get a COMPLETE POLYURETHANE BUSHING REPLACEMENT for your upper control arms, or you can even upgrade to Currie Johnny Joints.

Axle model options:
  • Dana 30 Low Pinion (Wrangler 1997-2006)
  • Dana 44 Low Pinion (Rubicon Wrangler 2003-2006)
Upper Control Arm Options:
  • Truss ONLY - No bushings/joints/keyed tabs included. Key hole slots on top of truss where keyed tabs would go must be filled with weld. Use this only if you aren't connecting the passenger side UCA or are reusing the factory bracket (see 4th image for details).
  • Daystar  Bushings - Includes bushing, inner sleeve, thrust washer, bolt, and nut for Driver side and bushing, weldable outer sleeve, inner sleeve, greasable bolt, nut, and two keyed tabs for Passenger side.
  • Currie Johnny Joints - Includes 2.0" Press-in machined Johnny Joint (CE-9112M), 2.0" weldable Johnny Joint (CE-9112), and two keyed tabs for Passenger side. Both joints include greasable bolts.

Features include:

  • 1/4" and 10 gauge (.130") mild steel. Precision CNC cut and bent for great fitment.*

  • Truss is low profile to allow clearance above the axle.

  • Truss spans length of long side AND short side.

  • Truss is reinforced using interlocked 10 gauge thick gussets for maximum strength and easy assembly.

  • Overall low profile design means your axle is stronger, sleaker, easier to fit into any vehicle, and less likely to interfere with vehicle components.

NOTE: This kit requires general welding and fabrication skills including welding to the cast center section. Welding should only be done by a competent welder. Artec Industries implies no guarantees or warranties and is not liable for improper installation.
*Some grinding and fitment may be required when installing this kit. Every axle varies slightly and some fabrication may be required.

Front Axle Truss for TJ
  Very well thought out truss. Install was straight forward when following the instructions. Fit the axle perfectly. Feel very confident in its added strength it has given my axle.
