    Artec Industries introduces the NEW Modular Truss Ends that complement the Modular and Short Trusses, enabling them to grow up and become full-width trusses. The product features a design inspired by our Low Profile Front Trusses, providing a more compact truss that doesn't obstruct other vehicle components. The 3/8" thick truss top and 1/4" thick gussets strengthen the axle and provide a link mounting surface or bumpstop pad. You can use a long Modular Truss End with a 14 bolt short truss to make a 14 bolt front axle. The overall length of the Modular Truss End is 20.73". Read Less

    Notes :This truss end is flat on the end and not contoured to any truss. THIS REQUIRES TRIMMING TO FIT. This kit requires general welding and fabrication skills.

    Install Instructions



    Tools Required :

    Safety Glasses, Gloves, , Socket Set, Wrenches, Wheel chocks,  Cutting Tool of your choice (Sawzall, Grinder, plasma, cutting torch)  Welder.


    Step 1:

    Inventory that you have all of the parts for your order If you are missing parts or have incorrect parts contact Artec Industries Immediately @ (855)-278-3299  M-F from 8am-5pm MST. If it is after those hours please Email Sales@Artecindustries.com


     Step 2:

    Place wheel chocks at the rear wheels of the vehicle.  Break free lug nuts on front wheels (Do not fully loosen or remove lug nuts yet.)


    Step 3:

    Jack up the front of the vehicle and set the axle on Jack stands, Remove the front wheels from the vehicle,  With the wheels removed Jack the vehicle up again.  Securely place tall jack stands under the frame behind  the LCA or Leaf spring mounts at the previously measurement of ride height. Place a 2nd sent of jack stands under the front axle.


     Step 4:

    Measure the Width of your Truss between the end of it and length of  Axle tubes and record the measurement, Measure the width of the TR0004 truss to determine where you need to cut and trim to fit your specific build . 


    Step 5: 

    Clean and prep the axle tubes and truss for welding.


    Step 6:

    Trim the Tr0004 (if needed)  set the truss on the axle and butt against existing truss on the axle. Tack weld the Tr0004 to the Truss and axle .  Then remove the axle from under the vehicle for more room to weld the Truss end to the Axle. Once the axle is pulled from under the vehicle.  Heat the axle to about 400 degrees Start to  weld the gussets to the axle and truss .When welding, Start on one side of the axle, Weld a small amount, Then move on to the opposite side of the axle to allow each side to cool. This will help prevent warping. Stitch welding is preferred  and welding every inch of every seam is not necessary. If you have any Control arm mounts, Shock mounts, Coil over tabs, Track bar mounts that need to be welded on to the axle  you will need to place the axle under the vehicle on jack stands at ride height and desired wheelbase an weld them on at this time in their proper location for your specific build.  Once all of the welding is complete you will wrap the axle in a welding blanket to slowly cool overnight.


    Step 7:

    Clean the Truss and axle of any machining oils and Prep for paint or powder coating


    Step 8:

    Install the axle back under the vehicle and place on jack stands. Install the wheels on the vehicle and tighten the lug nuts (Do not torque them down yet.)   Lift the vehicle and remove all of the jack stands and set the vehicle on the ground.  with the vehicle on the ground check all of the bolts and lug nuts are torqued to proper specs. we recommend drawing a line on the nut and bolt heads and where they are mounted for quick reference when checking for tightness after 50 miles .
