Ok, I am gathering everything I need to do some mods to our new 2016 JKR. This will be our "forever" Jeep and I want things done right the first time. I am running 33s and will never get bigger than 35s, if I ever go there at all.

The front diff is pretty set, but I am trying to sort out the rear. I'll be welding on a set of Atrec spring perches clocked to the ideal position for my drive shaft and lift dimensions. I'm also going to do a set of Artec rear LCA brackets as well. Like everything Jeep, I found myself wondering; is there much benefit to trussing the rear diff on a JKR?

Thanks,

Steve

I'll be staying with the basic short arm design and chalk this brilliant idea up to excessive exuberance! No rear truss!

Thanks Ken!

Chromoly axle shaft in the rear. The front is where the effort beefing it up (gussets/truss) is better spent.

I'm going to do this upgrade, but push it back on the timeline a bit.

Thanks!

If you are installing (welding) it in your self, I did it on mine. Cheep insurance.
I am doing all the install myself. I didn't have a torch setup for preheat, but I do now.

I'll be doing all the welding. Inner Cs, the truss, HD TB bracket on the front end. Spring perches, LCA brackets, and HD TB bracket on the rear.
