DISCONTINUED. THE NEW APEX ARMOR KIT REPLACES THIS VERSION


This heavy duty and light weight truss system and armor is designed to take serious abuse and reinforce your front Dana 30 or 44 JK axle. The 1/4" thick truss top and 10 Ga. gusseting incorporates a unique design to strengthen both axle tubes, not just the long tube (commonly found in "other" designs).  The precision cut and formed components of this setup ensure a hassle-free installation.
 
This ARMOR KIT includes all the parts to make your JK Dana 30 or 44 a rock solid, sturdy axle. Simply choose which axle you have for the truss to get started. If you don't want some of the components, we offer everything for individual sale. For details on each part, click the pictures below.
 
NOTE: If your lift replaces your trackbar and mounts to the factory axle bracket (typical with a lift that includes an adjustable trackbar), choose FACTORY HEIGHT BRACKET. If you are doing a DRAG LINK FLIP (which requires a minimum 3" lift and bumpstop extensions), choose RAISED HEIGHT BRACKET.

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.
  • 1/4" thick CNC laser cut and bent knuckle gussets, LCA skids, and HD Tracbar bracket ensure easy install to replace or reinforce those weak factory components.

THIS KIT IS INTENDED FOR VEHICLES WITH AT LEAST MINOR LIFTS. IF USING WITH NO LIFT, CHECK CLEARANCES BEFORE INSTALLING. NOT TESTED IN NON-US JKs WITH DIESEL ENGINES or RIGHT HAND DRIVE AXLES.**


NOTE: This kit requires general welding and fabrication skills including welding to the cast center section and cast inner c's. 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.

front truss
Great product fit like a glove. had to cut and trim a little to work with AEV front track bar/high steer kit but everything worked out good. Welded everything together much stronger they then before. I used a mig welded and didn't preheat anything no cracks. I plan to install the same type of kit on my friends TJ w/ a dana 30.

I have installed many of these JK front axle Armor kits, and as with any Artec product I have installed the fit and finish is second to none. I would highly recommend this kit to anyone needing to add some beef to their axle.

Happy JK owner
Installed this product on 2017 JK sport with DANA 30. Running 37" tires with 4:88 gears. I did the install my self in my garage with a wire welder. If you have any experience welding at all you can install with ease. Im not exactly easy on the rig and so far have not hade any trouble. I have ran trails that my buddies with DANA 44's won't run and have still been able to drive my rig home! Great product and would definitely recommend!!

I just want to say thank you for an amazing product. I love the piece of mind that it gives me when I am out on the trail. It lets me give that obstacle one last try without fear of damage. Thanks again for an amazing product.

Great, solid product
Great, solid product. Clean cuts and great bends make for a good fit. In my case, I think the axle's manufacturing tolerances made the fit less than optimal. The passenger's side upper link mount was located closer to the passenger's side of the axle than the truss was made for. I had to grind and plasma cut the top plate to fit. Also, I had to grind down the pieces between the passenger's spring perch and the upper link mount to fit. This was not a huge deal, but it increased my install time a bit. I also had a pretty crushed up lower control arm mount on the driver's side that needed much straightening to fit the LCA armor piece. Everything else fit as if it was cut specifically for my axle. Lastly, I feel the steering stabilizer mounting area would be better served by a tab, or a shock mount rather than two holes. I was not able to put a bolt through without grinding down the bolt. This was partly my fault as I has a weld bead that I could have skipped running close to the back of that mounting hole. I will end up with hyrdo-assist in the future, so that will be reworked at that time. Despite what may seem like a lot of gripes, I feel this is a great product and a great addition to my JKUR. I would buy it again.

I love all of Artec's parts. They are high quality, cut and bent with precision, and they fit perfectly every time.

Great fit, installation went very smoothly. My only complaint is the instruction to remove the electronics for the diff lock. Should instructed NOT to remove diff lock indicator switch, as you have to remove the carrier to install the switch after removal.

Big time strength upgrade for Dana30
I had this product professionally installed. What I noticed was that my 35" tires were no longer wearing out my heavy duty ball joints which I was replacing about one time a year. I wheel it about once or twice a month but since having this installed over a year now my ball joints are still in great shape. Not sure if it was the truss or the c-gusset reinforcements but maybe it was the combo? I think I could upgrade to 37" tires with this kit on my Dana 30. Did the truss on the rear dana 44 (Sahara model) for strength as well. Way less expensive than an axle housing replacement to achieve the same result. Very happy with this product.

Mr.
This product took awhile to finally get shipped, but once it did it got here in no time. Upon opening the box you could tell this product is top notch, and they do a great job of explaining the installation steps. I am not a welder by any means, but luckily my good friend did the welds in exchange for some pizza and adult beverages. His comment towards the kit was, "whoever made this knew what they were doing". It looks awesome on the Jeep,and I would totally recommend this for other JK owners.

Great reliable product
The strength of my dana 30 is now great and can wheel comfortably knowing it's going to bend with my oversized tires. Recommend ball joints and inner seals of course when doing them is as well as diff service of course. I let a pwrfessional handle my install. Stuff looks great and is tough and fits perfectly.

Front truss makes a small axle bigger
Ordered the D30 kit for my 2015 Jeep Jk unlimited. The jeep JKU came with a Hp D30 and having run a HP D60 I know the importance of strong axle housing. I knew I needed to strengthen the axle housing so thanks to Artec my D30 got much stronger with ease to assemble. the pieces fit together one way so there was no confusion. Great product that looks better on the axle and superior customer service. Thanks Artec.
