Perfect for that axle swap in the back of your TJ, XJ or YJ, the 8.8 Modular Axle Truss is the most versatile truss available for the popular Ford Explorer 8.8 axle. This heavy duty truss system is designed to take serious abuse and reinforce your axle while also providing a flat surface to mount your upper links. The 1/4" thick truss incorporates a unique design to strengthen both the axle and the link mounting surface.

This truss is available by itself, or you can add-on our optional leaf spring perches designed for use with a YJ Wrangler (Spring Over AXLE or SOA), XJ Cherokee, or coil spring perches designed for rear TJ Wrangler coil springs. If using for a YJ with leafs, simply choose the YJ leaf perches option, choose XJ leaf perches for Cherokees. If using in a TJ, choose coil perches as well as your upper link mount size and lower link mount angle. In either case, we also offer our new high clearance shock mounts as well. These place the lower shock mounts either in front or behind the axle in the lowest mounting position possible without giving up ground clearance.

The truss includes a bridge that ties into a flange off the pinion of the axle. This bridge is intended to be trimmed to fit depending on what pinion you set fo the top of the truss. By tying it into the pinion, it reinforces the strength of the whole truss.

If you are also purchasing one of our 4-link kits with this truss, CHOOSE NONE for the Lower axle link brackets and Truss upper link mounts. Those parts are included in our 4-link kits.

NOTE: Leaf spring option is for standard YJ width but is for spring over axle (SOA), not spring under (SUA). The kit does not include u-bolts. Coil spring option is for stock REAR TJ coils (the wider ones) not TJ front coils. Other spring options will be available soon.


NOTE: This kit requires general welding and fabrication skills. 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.
