When I got it I mocked it up and welded the truss separately from the tube.

Went together great, I'm a novice welder, and this was great practice and it will definitely hold together.

I ran my hard lines the other night and will get a picture of those put up here, for those that wanted to see how to do it.

I will add however that with all the orders that have come in recently, we will be out of the TJ kit until the first week of the new year. These things go way too fast. For those who can wait, now's a good time to get a great deal on these. 10% off and free shipping if you add a couple items to get the order over $350.

Just saw this thread, thought I'd drop in a pic of mine completed.

Yeah, I'd go back and add that to mine.
Another thought. Consider a 2" wide trackbar joint option.

Wasn't sure if you were aware of this...

I was installing the rear 8.8 into my ZJ this weekend...and I ended up having to grind away quite a bit of material off the shock mounting brackets. The flange was too narrow and contacted the body of the shock, or the hole in the flange was drilled too far into the bracket and caused the interference. Eitherway I was able to over come the issue at hand and install the rear, however I thought you may want to know.

This was a Rancho gas shock I got from Nick at Kolak...standard issue shock I believe.

Overall, the product is Kick@ss and everyone compliments the ridiculousness of strength it provides.

I just dropped my axles off the other day to get geared and have the artec truss put on the 8.8. I should be getting them back in the middle of this week
