Rear Axle Truss

Is it possible install a rear axle truss with axle still on the jeep? For example like the one from Clayton.

You don't see anything wrong with that plan?

I thinks what he means is you are committing fraud and seem to have no qualms about stealing a design and abusing a return system.

Thats messed up

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

High price sure...but clayton has the right to have a higher price, for one they have some of the most dependable systems on the market, and you know how much money they probably invested into the design and testing of it??? So your just going to steal all of their hard work?

Quite honestly you make me sick. An idea like this just gives the offroad community a bad name.
