The Portland store has become my go to for my Tj build. All the guy's in there are very friendly to me and my young daughter. Cant say enough good things about this Store.
tight fit good thick plate and support looks good under the new buggy can't wait to beat on it
followed directions installed perfect. thanks!
Now that is on and complete, I love it. The pieces are beautiful, you cannot duplicate the quality and precision fit. Artec stuff is the Best! Go! King of the Hammers !
This is an impressive kit. I run a fab shop building oil rigs and other equipment. Could I have designed and built it myself, yes. But why would I when it's been done for you and you would still have to buy the material anyway, then spend many hours designing, making dxf files (for plasma table, brake, etc), forming and machining the parts. This is well worth the price even though I have the resorces to do it myself, and the parts are cut on what must be a very high quality deck. The spring pockets are machined with an end mill on cnc (or one hell of a convensional machinest). My only complaint is the directions are too much directed for non fabricators and go's into too much detail into verbal steps. I would have prefered just dimensional drawings, or a read only solid works file, but no big deal at all. I now own 2 of these kits and will keep buying more as friends need them.

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
