Do-It-Yourself RAM MOUNT
Artec Industries is excited to announce our Do-It-Yourself Hydraulic Ram Mount. This heavy duty ram mount is designed to take serious abuse and protect some of the most vital and expensive components of your vehicle - your steering. The unique design places your ram in its most effective and strongest location - close to the axle center-line not high above it, and yet protects it from the rocks with the integrated 1/4" thick skidplate. Fits both PSC Motorsports and Howe Performance double-ended hydraulic rams. Works perfectly with our ULTIMATE 60 High Steer Arms giving you the strongest hydraulic steering solution on the market. The ram mount also extends end-to-end of the axle tube reinforcing the axle itself against bending and shearing. The gusseting design reinforces the ram mount to protect against damage from impact.
Since this kit is DIY, you cut out the section for clearancing the third member. Works great for shortened 60 axles and 9 inch housings. Please consult the dimensions of the mount to ensure it will work for your axle. Artec is not responsible if it doesn't fit your application after you have modified it. Please reinforce the area around the cutout if it is close or overlapping the speed holes. Axle tube diameter is 3.125" but can easily be modified to work for any size.
1/4" mild steel ram mount and gussets. Precision CNC cut and bent for great fitment.*
Ram Mount and Gussets feature drainage holes for easy cleaning and reduced weight.
Ram Mount doubles as an axle skid plate, allowing protection for your ram and tie rods and spans the length of the axle tube for more reinforcement against bending and shearing.
Ram Mount incorporates an additional 1/4" thick bolt on skid plate in front of differential to allow easy removal of gears. Skid plate is bolted using included countersunk bolts which hold up to trail damage better than other style bolts and don't get hung up on obstacles.
Fits both PSC Motorsports and Howe Performance* doubled ended hydraulic rams.
Clearanced to use with rotated knuckles and pinions.
Overall low profile design means your axle is stronger, sleeker, easier to fit into any vehicle, and less likely to interfere with rocks or other parts of your vehicle such as your oil pan.
