I'd be interested in seeing a pic as well...

and not to thread jack, but just happened to be looking at bluefabtorchworks.com today and they have an AMC 20 truss that welds to the to pumpkin and tubes and also ties into the diff cover...$280 or so for that set up, just for comparison

Eddie / BESRK , one of our CJ forum moderators :thumbsup:, also makes a great 3 pc truss on his C&C machine. When I got mine it was $100 shipped. Top notch product.

--->Look here<---- for some install pictures.

Make sure you don't get your pee pee slapped, apply for vendor status before you start posting prices and taking orders. :D

Anywho, always good to have more to choose from and more competition in the marketplace! :thumbsup:

Bottom tubing is cut to fit around the axle tube radius and one side is longer on purpose evidently the pumpkin isn't exactley centered lol

One suggestion.. when butting 2 tubes at an angle, split the angle between the 2 tubes.

For instance, let's say the angle needs to be 45deg. Cut each tube at 22.5deg and they'll butt up cleanly at a 45. That will allow you to weld around the whole tube to keep the joint closed so the tubes don't fill up with mud/debris. :thumbsup:

There is a market I'm sure, but I'm in the process of making my own. Just had a friend who has a plasma table cut me out my template for a test fit on my 20. It's going to be a combo of plate steel and sq. tubing. He already offers trusses for wrangler jk 44 axles for sale at $125. Personally I think they are on the short side, as a truss should support the ends where the force is being applied.
