    Artec Industries introduces the NEW AAM 9.25 Truss, designed to reinforce the entire front axle on Dodge 3rd Gen Rams 2500 and 3500 (2003-2012). Heavy engines on these trucks can lead to axle bending or breaking. This truss allows maximum up-travel with minimal ground clearance loss under the differential. Perfect for off-roading enthusiasts, the truss is CNC cut and formed for a great fit, requiring little-to-no grinding or modifications during installation.

    Notes : This kit requires specific welding and fabrication skills including welding to cast and forged steel. Lower control arm brackets gussets require removal prior to installation. May require small additional trimming on the seam between the truss and lower inner c based on rotation of inner c's which can vary vehicle to vehicle. Welding should only be done by a certified welder. Artec Industries implies no guarantees or warranties and is not liable for improper installation.
