Sterling 10.25 REAR AXLE TRUSS


Artec Industries is excite to announce the NEW Sterling (Ford) 10.25 Rear Axle Truss. 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.
This truss allows for a selection of pinion angles from 7 to 20 degrees. Any more or less and some trimming may be required.
This truss fits Sterling 10.25 axles with a centered differential.Overall length on this truss is about 53 inches. Also fits Sterling 9.75" and 10.5" axles with minor trimming.
NOTE: This truss is very form fitting to the contours of the casting. Due to variances in casting of this axle over the years, some trimming may be necessary on the truss and non-essential parts of the casting.

Features include:

  • 3/8" thick mild steel truss top and 1/4" mild steel ram mount and gussets. Precision CNC cut and bent for great fitment.*

  • Truss is low profile allowing link joints to be mounted with ideal geometry - about 9 inches from the axle centerline.

  • Truss spans entire length of axle for complete reinforcement of the axle tubes - not just for mounting links.

  • Truss is reinforced using interlocked 1/4 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. 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.

  Wow, this thing is a work of art! It actually saddens me that I have to modify it to clear my existing brackets. I'm glad I chose to buy vs build this time.

Sterling 10.5 Truss used on STerling 9.75 (F-150) Axle on Prerunner
  I bought this truss because it is one of the few available for my application (with modifications). I am reinforcing a 2002 F-150 (Sterling) 9.75" axle for use on a desert prerunner. This is a VERY common Ford axle on the F-150 that came with the 5.4 Liter V8. I use aftermarket leaf-springs and 16" bypasses in the rear versus a linked rear end, so I had to do some serious fabrication to shorten the truss about 5" on each side so as not to interfere with the leaf-spring perches. I was able to use the provided metal to do this. I also needed to move my limit strap double sheer mounts around to the front of the axle to clear the truss. I liked the quality of the kit and the fast and reasonable shipping from Artec Industries. This will make my axle housing strong enough for the jumps and abuse prerunning dishes out and pares well with my re-gearing and 35" tires. Thanks
