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 30 or 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:
  • 30 Low Pinion (Wrangler 1997-2006)
  • 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, and thrust washer for Driver side and bushing, weldable outer sleeve, inner sleeve, 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.

** In rare and extreme cases, the truss may come into contact with oil pan. Prior to operating the vehicle, remove the coil springs, cycle the suspension including full compression of both sides simultaneously and add bumpstop extensions to prevent damage to oil pan.

This kit rocks. I was worried about it weighing to much when I ordered it. When I got it I was pleasantly surprised how light it is. The top piece is a solid 1/4", the others are thinner. There is plenty of gusseting for strength. The directions are very straightforward and easy to read. Just make sure you put good tacks and don't let it get to hot. I think using this kit is far better than sleeving the axle tube.

Outstanding product
I ordered the Dana 44 Artec truss with the Currie Johnny Joint to strengthen my new G2 axles and had it installed the same time as my Rock Krawler 5.5 long arm coil over lift kit. Easy install with a professional look and unreal strength.

Axle Truss
I purchased the Dana 44 front axle truss for a LJ. It fit great. Easy install and great instructions. I read them after I was done. It's a guy thing. I'm a certified welder so it was super easy.

Jeep TJ Axle Truss
The TJ Axle truss was delivered in pieces, which had been expected. The piece were easy to assemble for test fitting, tack welds and final welding. Since adding the truss, I have rock crawled my jeep with no issues. I would recommend to anyone to add this truss to their Jeep TJ.

Truss Install Dana 30 1998 ZJ
I added this truss assembly along with inner axle tube sleeves to strengthen my dana 30. The truss assembly was very well made, the quality is quickly apparent. I had no issues assembling and welding the truss to my housing. Once painted the truss looks great, I have had numerous compliments and questions about where to purchase one.

In Artec you can Truss
I bought this front axle truss kit for my LJ Rubicon. The first thing I noticed was how nicely it was designed and i have to say its designed very well. The truss fits pefectly together like Lego blocks an was a perfect fit on my axle. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and once you weld it in place it's very stout and looks great. After finishing mine a few of my buddies want one for their jeeps. I would definitely recommend Artec industries to anyone looking for updates for their rig. They are well made parts and i couldn't be happier with them.

Picked this Truss setup up along with Lower Control Arm Brackets, C-Gussets, and HD track Bar bracket. Artec stuff is bar none. Really well built, and designed. Really excited for the abuse my D44 is going to hold up to now. Real Jeep BEEF!

Mr
All parts fit perfectly and were very well made. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. The Johnny Joint in this kit is much better than the stock bushing and was easy to do the extra welding required. The hardest part is painting all the inside surfaces. I am very happy with this truss and highly recommend it.

Dana 30 Truss
Great product, very well built and user friendly installation. The way the pieces only fit one way makes it fool proof. The detailed instructions were very helpful.

the product looks very good fitment was nearly perfect and the instructions were very clear and easy to follow. i am sure it will add strength to this axle. there is only one thing i would add to the instructions. i had what i was sure was a perfect axle off a low mileage vehicle and installed the truss and the "C" arm braces only after wards to find that i had a slightly bent axle where the long tube had slightly moved up in the end of the diff carrier. so to the instructions i would add dont be like this dummy check your axle "trueness" with a known good straight piece of round stock to be sure you tubes are straight in the diff carrier BEFORE you install this while you can still fix it. to be clear the product and the installation didnt cause this problem it existed before and i just didnt think to check it. thankfully the bend was so slight that i can still use the axle i modified and look forward to having fun with this Lj rubicon. thanks again for the great products.

Great looking product,i have not installed this truss yet but i have no doubt it will look and function awesome. My only complaint with this truss kit is that a couple of the tabs were cut crooked so i will have to straighten them up with a grinder when i install

zJ dana 30 truss
I shopped around and looked at many parts before I decided to go with this product. When I received the truss I was happy to see the quality of the parts and how it fit. None of the parts I received in the kit where of low quality. You can definitely tell that the part was not just stamped out and will perform the way the product said it will. The instructions I received with the truss where great too, they made the install easy and straight forward. I'm really happy with the truss and I can't wait to order more parts like this one.

Front axle truss great product
Truss fit perfect. instructions easy to understand and straight forward. Looks good. Add this with some axle sleeves and your front axle is guaranteed not to bend. Excellent customer service. installed lower control arm brackets as well. another great product.

Awesome product
Wow is the first word that came out of my mouth when I received my Dana 44 truss, followed by a few expletives when I fit it on my axle housing, the Egyptians don't have **** on Artec when it comes to tight fitting parts, parts fit every contour of the diff like it was born on there. You will not find a better fitted truss anywhere at 3 times the price, was skeptical since it was less than 100$ but wow, just wow! You will make a mistake if you buy any other truss, I'm regretting buying my link mounts elsewhere now, when I swap 1 tons under Bender they will get the full Artec treatment!
