Swap a bigger rear axle
into ZJ and eliminate the tracbar
Artec Industries is
excited to announce the Triangulated ZJ Axle Swap Kit. This heavy duty
1/4" truss is designed to take serious abuse and reinforce your
entire axle. The accompanying brackets provide the OEM coil, anti-sway bar,
lower control arm and shock locations, but triangulate the upper control arms
which eliminates the need for a tracbar. We also offer this kit with a HIGH
CLEARANCE option that raises the LCA and shock brackets above the bottom of the
NOTE: This kit is a compilation of some of our existing brackets
that are sold both individually and with other kits. Some slight modification
may be necessary to the brackets for use with the axle. THIS IS A CUSTOM
SUSPENSION SETUP AND WILL NOT WORK DIRECTLY WITH THE OEM MOUNTS. THIS WILL
REQUIRE LOTS OF MOCKUP AND TESTING. LARGER AXLES NOT INTENDED FOR THIS VEHICLE
MAY NEED ADDITIONAL FABRICATION AND CLEARANCING OF AXLES AND/OR BODY. PURCHASE
OF THIS KIT AGREES THAT THE END USER ACCEPTS FULL RESPONSIBILITY TO MODIFY HIS
VEHICLE TO MAKE THE AXLE FIT. See below for a list of parts.
- Choose from popular rear axles: Ford 8.8, Chevy/GMC
Truck 14 bolt, Ford Superduty Sterling, and Jeep JK Rear Dana 44
- 1/4" thick mild steel truss and brackets for much
higher strength than the factory bracket and other aftermarket brackets.
Precision CNC cut and bent for great fitment.*
- Includes all the brackets necessary for a complete axle
swap including upper and lower control arm mounts, shock mounts, anti-sway
bar mounts, and coil spring mounts.
- Eliminates the tracbar by using triangulated upper
control arms. Not for use with OEM control arms. New upper links and frame
side brackets will be needed.*
- Save hours of installation time. Outer brackets just
need to line up to truss, no guessing and measuring involved.
- Choose your Truss Upper Link Mount width - 1.75"
for our 7/8" rod end kit, 2.0", 2.63" for 1.25" rod
end kit or other large joints.
- High-Clearance option provides flat LCA brackets and
shock mounts to reduce rock damage. Not for use with OEM control arms.
- High-Clearance Shock mounts flip bolt orientation to
perpendicular to axle tube providing more rotation without binding. Upper
shock mount relocation may be necessary.
- 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 it into any vehicle, and less likely to interfere with
Note: Only 8.8 truss comes with the
pinion bridge (shown). We offer a pinion guard and bridge for the 14 bolt axle
(see Accessories). All other axles do not have a pinion bridge.
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. Will require brake line relocation
