Artec Industries is excited to announce the Ford Front 60 Hydraulic Ram Mount and Truss For axles from the 1980s. This heavy duty truss system 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 Inch its most affective and strongest location - close to the axle centerline not high above it, and yet protects it from the rocks with the integrated 1/4 inch 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 3/8 inch thick truss extends end-to-end of the axle tube providing not only a location For mounting your 3 and 4 links, but also truly reinforcing the axle itself against bending and shearing. The unique gusseting design allows both the truss and ram mount to completely reinforce eachother Inch every direction.
