Artec Industries is excited to announce the JK2TJ Rear Axle Swap Kit. This heavy duty truss and bracket system is designed to take serious abuse and reinforce your entire axle while also providing the factory link, anti-sway bar, and shock locations. The 1/4" thick truss top incorporates a unique design to strengthen both the axle and incorporate the link brackets for ease of installation and added strength. By incorporating the link mounts into the truss, hours of work and trial and error can be avoided when compared to other bracket systems. Simply tack weld the truss together, place it on the axle and all the other brackets fit into place exactly where they need to be.
The JK rear D44 features: 3-1/8" diameter tubes as compared to 2.625" D35, disc brakes, bigger spline axle shafts, larger diameter ring gear than D35.
NOTE: The JK D44 axle has a different 5 lug bolt pattern than the factory axle so new wheels will be needed. It is also a wider axle so prepare for the WMS to be wider than your factory axles. Only to be used with our JK2TJ Front Axle Swap Kit.
NOTE: This kit requires general welding and fabrication skills. Welding should only be done by a competent welder. Artec Industries implies no guarantees or warranties and is not liable for improper installation.
*Some grinding and fitment may be required when installing this kit. Every axle varies slightly and some fabrication may be required. Will require brake line relocation to fit.
