Actually looks shorter or equal height to an artec?
Maybe he just thinks it looks taller because its taller for a wider span???
I like it.looks tough.
Doing the sleeves may be overkill? Is there such a thing?
It is a bronco 2 with 110 hp??

I don't think they r necessary...

sended frum dis stoopid fone.

It is only 4.750" tall from the top of the tube. I'm gonna have to go taller for my link mount too

I guess I'll think about the sleeving

If I went to the c, where would I mount the springs? That is what the step down is for next to the c. I thought about running it straight out from there, but I didn't think it would do much for me. I guess I could gussets them, you think I should?

I would take them flat to the C and gusset it. Why not? You could reverse the angle after the spring bucket too to get higher up the C if you wanted \_ I used my coilover brackets to gusset mine.

I made this for a buddy.


Yes it's tall but his rig will be stupid tall anyways so it doesn't matter.

I would go to the C's like I did if possible. just looks like the weak point of the whole axle if you don't.

I didn't have room for a truss.


If I had room, I'd have one for sure! I like it, just tie your C's to the axle tube somehow.

Got the truss done for the most part, but forgot to snap a pic before I slid it back under ....so deal with a crappy pic.



I ran the truss out to the c's, I don't mind it I guess. Now on to getting it installed.

Also picked up some new to me rollers till I can buy some good ones. 36.5" rvt tires on some stock 8 lug wheels. I hope they last a few runs but for the price, I can't complain.

Thanks. Looking forward to doing body work and paint so it does start looking nice.

The wife wants me to paint it more than anything.

Gonna put some hours into it this week, hope to make it a roller.
