8.8 Swap Kit w/TRUSS for Jeeps

Got my TJ truss Friday. Only complaint is I think someone forgot to drill the track bar holes to proper size. There`s no way a 1/4" bolt is stock size... otherwise I`m happy, Thanks.

I pretty much asked the same thing and I got this email back


The biggest new feature is the inclusion of a new coil seat. Typically, most companies just include a bottom coil perch that is flat and say it is good enough. When you go to tighten the retainer down though, it can make the coil sit at an odd angle because the bottom of the coil isn't flat. What we are including now is a machined coil seat that follows the contours of the coil as it goes up and also locates it better than just a typical retainer. This new piece needs to be machined and thus is accounting for the small delay. Additionally, we just made some small adjustments to the brackets to make them fit better in a stock application.

Thanks,
Nate Price

Any sales coming up for the TJ truss? Building on a college budget and any amount saved helps a ton.

It's high quality. I still have to get it welded up

Couldn't imagine it being any other way. Laser cut 1/4" thick....would be hard to make it not high quality with that process.

How could it be any better? Oh you're sick of running shortarms? Well Chop off the stock uppers and weld these brackets on the truss and you're set for longarms
