A new era has begun with the arrival of the APEX Truss! Artec Industries is proud to announce the next generation of Patent Pending axle trusses. This series of trusses not only builds on our experience as the world leader in axle truss design, it brings it to a whole new level of cost savings, strength, weight savings, simplicity of installation, precision fitment, and complete axle protection never before seen in the industry.
The key feature that sets the APEX truss apart is its unique peaked shape top which provides extra rigidity to the whole truss while allowing both a reduction in weight (vs using a thicker material top) and eliminating long weld seams. Previous version with long weld seams which can be lead to extra weld warping of the axle, longer install times and can be inconsistent. Without long seams to weld, now you drop the truss directly on to the axle and weld it to the axle faster.
We started the Jeep 1 ton Revolution and now we're taking it to the next level. The new APEX swap kit is designed to have a simpler, faster install, with less parts and weight and lower price. We've worked hard to improve everything, from making the truss easier to weld, to less warping from welding, to optimizing the shock bracket locations and lowering the upper control arm mounts for more clearance and better geometry.
The improvements made have been suggested by our network of dealer/installers who build these kits every day. Now they are a reality. The new 1 Ton APEX Front Swap Kit delivers in every way.
This heavy duty truss and bracket system is designed to take serious abuse and reinforce your entire axle while also providing the factory link, spring, anti-sway bar, and shock locations. The 3/16 inch thick truss incorporates a unique peaked design to strengthen both the axle and incorporate the link brackets for ease of installation and added strength.
By using the truss to align the link mounts, hours of work and trial and error can be avoided when compared to other bracket systems. Simply tack weld the truss on the axle, and all the other brackets fit into place exactly where they need to be.

Artec Industries is a company that was founded in 2003 in Tucson, Arizona, and is known as Artec Welding back then. The company started when the company's president Artie Nuttall bought a 1987 4Runner to join his wife's family offroad excursion.
As a talented welder himself, he started welding structural and decorative projects for various high-end commercial and residential projects. But his passion for offroading has never left him.
So in 2010, Artec Welding was rebranded as Artec Industries and started developing products for the automotive industry.
The company used its experience in welding to create some of the best offroad parts available in the market today. They offer parts such as ultimate high steer arms, quart crates, but they are better known for their axle swap kits and axle trusses.
As more people patronize their products, there is a need for Artec to relocate to a bigger facility to accommodate their customers' growing demand. From a small garage, the company is now situated in a large facility in Salt Lake City, Utah, which is a strategic location that allows them to distribute their products more efficiently.
If you are in the market for quality offroad parts, Artec Industries is the brand. Each part is carefully manufactured by the country's most talented craftsmen. It guarantees that you get the best product every time. To know more about Artec, visit Vivid Racing and check out their list of products that fit your specific need.
