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 control arms in a 4-link set up. The 1/4" thick truss top incorporates a unique design to strengthen both the axle and provide a low profile link mounting surface. The base truss itself spans about 43.5 inches across the center of your axle. Designed for TJ Wrangler Rubicon Rear Dana 44 axle. Trimming required for fitment on JK Rubicon rear axle and other centered rear Dana 44 axles. The Jeep TJ Rubicon Rear Dana 44 has a centered differential housing that measures approx. 15" and the axle tube diameter is 2.625 inches. Other Dana 44s will measure differently and have differing axle tube diameters. Please ensure your axle meets these dimensions prior to ordering. Can be easily modified to fit larger tube diameters. Regardless, the axle should have No Stock Bracketry for this truss to work. This kit requires general welding and fabrication skills.

Answer this question
Hello Nick, the Artec Industries Dana 44 Rear Axle Truss part# A/ITR4403 will work with a long arm upgrade as long as its not a three link. Thank you for your inquiry.
Will this truss fit a Dana 44 rear axle that's in 1980 Jeep CJ7 with a 4" lift leaf spring under suspension?
Answer this question
Thank you for the question. Yes, this will fit your vehicle application.
Artec Industries is based in Salt Lake City, Utah, but its origins are an American success story based in Tucscon, Arizona. The owner, Artie Nuttall, married into a family of off-roaders who quickly infected him with their enthusiasm. So much so that Nuttall took a welding class at a community college so that he could complete DIY axle swaps on his rig in his garage. Turns out he had a talent for welding and in 2010 Artie successfully marketed a line of battery mounts. From there, Artec Welding turned into Artec Industries and though the product line and success grew, Nuttall's attention to craftsmanship and quality never wavered. Shop Artec Industries Now
