Fits factory-style upper control arms for Jeep TJ, LJ, XJ, and ZJ. Accepts both standard and long-arm control arms that mimic the factory configuration with the axle end of the bushing pressed into fixed axle mounts.
Rusty's once again delivers the goods to home fabricators wanting to bring a professional look to their custom suspension projects! Rusty's Dana 30 / Dana 44 front axle truss provides a clean and easy way to install a custom front axle, or simply gusset the axle housing for additional strength during those occasional airborne moments.
The axle truss starts with 1/4" thick steel plate that has been laser-cut, keyed, and precision-formed for an exact fit. The truss spans the cast iron differential housing and provides a sturdy, flat place to add a mount for a suspension link to the top of the differential. Designed to fit Dana 30 and Dana 44 axle tubes, the truss can also be radiused and clearanced slightly to fit other axle tubes. The main body of the truss ships fully welded but the kit includes a link mount that is shipped loose. This allows the position of the link mount position to be "dialed in" once the axle is under the Jeep. Once positioned, it can be fully welded into place. A second upper link mount is also supplied that is mounted to the "long side" axle tube. Both mounts accept factory rubber bushings, and a pair of Clevite bushings are included (bushings are shipped loose and must be pressed into place once welding is completed). This truss is the perfect solution for reinforcing stock housings or installing a custom or aftermarket housing .
This truss design will accept factory-style control arms, both standard length and long-arm systems.
Please note that welding and fabrication skills are required for installation.
