I have a question about the tj truss, does the truss and spring perches center the axle from wms to wms or does it try to center the pumpkin? I can't remember which kit centered it based on the pumpkin, and I don't want that. thanks

If you go to the artec website you will get the complete break down of how it works. It was designed to center the axle as if it came from the factory. Ask them to be certain, but from what I've read your factory mounting locations will be in the exact spots.

That is the beauty of this kit imo, takes any guess work out for the buyer......and it is tough as hell

Definitely centers the axle from wms to wms. If you centered it on the diff of the 8.8 it'd be sticking way out one side. The 8.8 center section is offset differently than the factory d35 and thats what normally makes doing this swap a challenge with other companies brackets. KyBoy is exactly right, this kit takes out the guess work. You don't have to rack your brain trying to figure out offsets and measuring over and over again just to make sure its right. Just tack the truss and upper link mount part together and drop it on, no measuring needed because the truss centers it. The only thing you have to do is set your pinion angle.

Looks like we have a few left on the shelf right now. They go quickly though, so jump on it. I'll be making more next week.
