Description:

Designed for the AAM American Axle found under Heavy Duty Dodges, the Carli Axle Truss is a crucial component for the avid off-roader that routinely puts their truck in extreme situations. The factory AAM axle is susceptible to bending from the forces encountered in normal or extraneous off-road activities, leaving the truck with a "smile" that leads to worn tires and steering components. At the heart of the Truss is an internal network of 1/4" thick x-bracing and reinforcement ribs that zig-zag down the length of the axle. Coupled with the axle tube saddles, Upper C Gussets, Lower C Doublers, and CNC manufactured plates, the Carli Fabricated Truss will keep your axle straight and intact for that next blast down a desert trail.

Note: This Truss is NOT a direct fit item and will require skilled fitment and installation. The cutting, grinding and welding needs of this part mandate that only certified or similarly capable welders attempt to install this unit. Knowledge of dissimilar metals (Cast/Forged/CRS) is highly recommended. This product should only be installed by a competent and knowledgeable fabricator/welder. Due to variances in production methods, castings, and model year changes, it might be necessary to trim/grind/fit both the Truss and the Axle

 Brace for Impact!

So we’ve given you the tools to expand your perception of the term “off road” and in short order you’ve been getting more comfortable behind the wheel. In an attempt to see what your bad ass truck can do, you are deliberately looking for obstacles to plow through to find that threshold where the truck says “nuh-uh, didn’t like that.” Gone are the days when splashing through a monsoon-soaked service trail a hair faster than a horses trot would bring a permanent smile; you’ve seen what a GOOD shock can do for control and performance and you now demand more for satisfaction and entertainment. Have we created a monster? From now-on-out, the old adage “there’s no replacement for displacement” isn’t just ringing true, it has become your truck’s cadence as you hear the cacophony of American metal and brawny rubber ruthlessly pounding Dirt like it owes Metal & Rubber money. There’s a stretch of a rutted-out unpaved service road you’ve found that haunts your daydreams like that limber redheaded college cheerleader that crawled up on your truck’s hood during a Car Wash Fundraiser and you are determined to see what you can get away with.

Well, like many things in life you can’t just go let the bull out of the pen without thinking of protection first. For your truck, whether you’re going to be slamming it around, taking a “short cut” at break-neck speed, or just riding it hard and putting it away wet, there are a couple areas of concern that need to be addressed before a repair bill with far too many zero’s is thrown in your face. You’ve got the suspension: CHECK. You’ve got the Ball Joints: CHECK. You’ve got Stabilizers and a Differential Guard: CHECK. Do you have an Axle Truss? Uhh….. no? For the pent-up dirt animal that is clawing it’s way out of your psyche, this is a definitive MUST-HAVE.

One minor drawback to the Dodge trucks is their AAM front axle doesn’t dig extreme abuse. The axle can bend in a few different areas that weren’t intended to be bent, resulting in crazy tire wear and an axle “smile” that makes an on-looker say “Aww, bless his heart, he’s trying!”. Solution? AXLE TRUSS. In simplest terms, its a means of reinforcing the axle to prevent bending. Many styles have been presented to the world, but few have been customer friendly enough to allow them to be installed by the motivated DIY’er.
