14 bolt Rear Short Truss


Artec Industries is excite to announce the NEW 14 bolt Rear Short 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. We've been running this exact truss in our JK swap kit for years...now it's available for purchase individually.
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 most 14 bolt axles from Chevy/GMC trucks. Van axles are offset differently. Overall length on this truss is 27.29"  inches.
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 is designed to fit in between Leaf Springs or can be used as a base for mounting link suspension mounts.

  • Truss is reinforced using interlocked 1/4 thick gussets for maximum strength and easy assembly.

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

***This truss works best with the PG1403 - Low Mount Pinion Guard/Bridge option*** 

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 item. Every axle varies slightly and some fabrication may be required.

It’s a great truss to build with the only thing I wish is that you offered two different verisions one for the ribbed 14 bolt (like this one) and one with out the holes for the ribs. Leaves a lot of holes to fill which is no big deal if your putting one on you should have some fab skills anyway. All of my mounts are artec and will continue to be
