Full Length Axle Truss for your Ford High Pinion Dana 44*

If you're thinking of swapping a HP Dana 44 out of a Leaf Sprung Ford application into your Jeep® TJ, LJ UnLimited, Cherokee XJ, ZJ Grand Cherokee or MJ Comanche, this product will interest you. The TNT High Pinion Dana 44 Axle Truss makes performing this swap a breeze and is an easy way to strengthen your front housing and end up with beefier axle brackets and components at the same time. The most interesting part is that our design allows you to install the truss without having to measure - our optional UCA mounts, coil buckets and trackbar mounts are jig welded to the truss during assembly. To locate the truss, all you have to do is set it perpendicular to the ground and burn it home, easy enough just about anyone can do it. We let you choose what mounts you want so that you can order your truss so that it best corresponds to your application.

Mount Features:

  • Mounts constructed of 3/16" steel plate
  • DS & PS Upper Control Arm mounts ship with new bushings
  • Slotted Coil Buckets for easy wheelbase adjustment
  • Coil mounts include shock & factory trackbar mounting provisions
  • Trackbar mounts available for Over-the-knuckle and Crossover/Hysteer applications
  • Swaybar mounts constructed of 3/8" steel plate
  • Manufactured in the USA using American Steel!

I bought this truss with all the options to build a nearly bolt in axle for a Jeep TJ. It arrived quickly, looked solid, installed very easily and made for a very quick job. I did run into a problem by following the directions and removing most of the factory cast in spring perch - when you remove the perch you also remove the alignment hole for a a case spreader. For most people that might not be an issue - but if you plan to install an ARB, you must use a case spreader! I needed to weld some material back on to the housing to make the case spreader work, it added an additional few steps that I hadn't planned for. BUT the actual truss worked fine and the mounts are all much beefier then stock and should handle a lot of offroad abuse!
