Ford Dana 60 Front Axle Truss w/ Steering Ram Mount 78-79
SKU : MB4071
Vendor : Motobilt
Product Type : Axle Truss
The Motobilt Ford Dana 60 early king pin axle truss is laser cut and bent out of 3/8 inch high strength steel for the main structure. This kit was designed specifically for the 1978 to 1979 Ford King Pin dana 60 found in 250/350's. The truss spans the length of the axle, and includes in an integrated hydraulic ram mount for full hydraulic steering. The design is meant for a 2.5 inch-2.75 inch double ended ram. The ram is completely protected from underneath with a full skid plate to keep it safe from rocks.
- This new kit consists of a full length axle truss and integrated steering ram mount. The main truss is made from massive 3/8 inch thick steel plate that is both laser cut and CNC bent for a precise fit. There is significant bracing internally with the use of 3/8 inch and 3/16 inch thick mounts.
- Not only is your axle going to have superior strength it will also have a high clearance mount to protect your 2.5-2.75 inch double ended steering ram. This mount allows you to tuck the ram up out of harms way and is completely protected with 1/4 inch thick cnc bent steel plate.
- On top connecting the truss to the front of the steering ram mount is a bracket that provides extra strength and serves as a winch suck down point. A small d ring shackle can be mounted here so that you can attach your winch to it when attempting those extreme climbs. Once you attach and pull the winch tight you decrease your chances of the rig unloading on those steep ledges.
- Another awesome option provided are the 2 holes on each end of the truss. These holes can also act as points for a small d ring to be attached.
- When designing the steering ram mount we paid special attention to make sure that the ram was placed optimally to work with correctly with after market steering arms.
- A removable skid plate around the differential cover allows for full accessibility to work on your differential.
- The entire system is designed with keyway fitments to ensure a true and straight forward install.
- We have additional mounts for coil overs, link tabs, and hydraulic steering rams available for purchase separately and are not included with this kit.
- Notes: Professional welding is required to install this system properly.
