    Artec trusses, and if you want to build custom links, I can get you a deal on a kit from Ruff Stuff and have it drop shipped to you.

    I can also get your Artec trusses.

    well, since i started this thread, i have built the king pin dana 60 axle with an ARB locker and i have built the 14 bolt with a yukon grizzly locker and 5:13 gears.. i have currently tack welded the truss and LCA tabs to the axle.. i still need to weld in my rear coilover shock tower and tabs to the axle for the coilover, but i am waiting til i get the front axle bolt in to do that.. the front axle is currently sitting under the jeep.. i need to get a friend over to help me get it squared up so i can cut my upper and lower control arms to the length i need since i did a front stretch as well.. the rear was stretched about 5" also.. i am also trying to figure out how to make my steering work correctly.. i keep getting all kinds of different information on how i should do it..

    The TJ I'm currently building, I had to order a TNT steering box relocation kit for, and since he is going to hydro assist, order a YJ steering box.

    i ordered the TNT steering box kit, but i am going to reuse my 3 bolt steering box, so i designed and cut new frame mounts for it.. i wasn't happy when i found out it was made for the 4 bolt non mercedes box, because i called and told them what i had and what i was doing.. they said it would work with ease.. oh well, i fixed it.. now i have the drawings and information to cut out frame mounts and a new body mount piece for under the grill.. i am thinking i will sell them for $50 without the steering links..

    It does say directly on their website that it doesn't work with the Mercedes 03/04 gearbox.
    That's why we are going with a YJ one. Plus the YJ one is rebuildable, cheaper, and easier to come by.
