Very high quality kit!
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.

Great price fantastic quality lightning!
Absolutely a great price and shipping, felt like I was purchasing from a friend.
Do you need to take the actual completely off the jeep to install this?
Mad Dog from Manteca, CA on
You would install this using the Ford 8.8 axle as a conversion axle. Stock you wouldn't have an 8.8 in your Jeep.
Rody from Manteca, CA on
will this fit on a 1995 ZJ
Joey from on
Yes they will work on the ZJ also.

Will the truss kit let you orient the pinion angle to be adequate for lift? 8.8 install in a tj usually says 15 degrees upward pinion angle is optimal. does this kit take that into consideration??? thanks.
Brock$tar from on
Yes, the Artec Industries 8.8 Swap Kit with Truss A/ITR8801 will allow you adjust for correct pinion angles. Please Note: We highly suggest against anything over a 12 degree angle with the 8.8 axle if you are driving this vehicle on the highways. More than a 12 degree angle and the axle will not properly oil itself and over heat. Thank you for the question.
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
