I'm surprised you haven't broke the front shafts yet.

I'm going to assume it's due to you actually having a locker compared to my welded front.

I used to break stubs (inside the hub, not at the ears) till I went 35 spline, never broke an inner. But my caps have always been welded to the ears.

My 14B truss, I haven't ground the old welds down yet so the truss is sitting up on top of the old shit.

You buy those trusses prebuilt or making them? They look nice.

Yep I got them from Artec during there veterans day sale. They are like a jigsaw puzzle of pieces lol. I also got the lower coilover mounts that are made for my axles and these truss's to all work together.

Working on maybe putting together another order to take advantage of their thanksgiving sale for all my link brakects at all sides. 10% off + free shipping till monday.

No, I am undecided what I am doing there. I have a single ended which they don't offer for a truss mount. I have been debating running a hi steer arm on the pass knuckle and running the ram directly from the axle to the high steer arm behind the axle. Then the hiem/tie rod connection on the front solo.

Never been a fan of the shovel front double ended ram look.
