Most brilliant idea I've seen in a while. I'll be getting one of these at some point.

As if it weren't simple enough to install, we've added laser etched part numbers on the parts themselves now and simplified a couple pieces for an easier install.

For those of you considering this swap, the truss is the key. It allows a no measurement installation. Assemble the truss pieces and plop it on the axle and everything is prealigned in its proper location. Plus you get a truss which strengthens your whole axle as well. We didn't just whip up a set of brackets, this kit was thought through to make it easy on you.

Here's a great writeup on the installation. http://cap-it-jeep.blogspot.com/2012...rtec-axle.html
