Take your JK up a level or 3. Premium Front Axle Aluminum 3-link Kit for your JK. For the past 5 years, we've been testing 7075 Aluminum links in the ARTECON to ensure that they could handle the abuse of both extreme, heavy duty rock crawling and normal daily driving. We've been pleased with how they've handled the rigorous abuse and how much weight is saved by using is compared to standard steel tubing.
The JK Front Aluminum 3-Link Kit starts with our ARTEC abuse proven 2.25 inch Outer Diameter, Aerospace grade 7075 Aluminum Lower Links and 2.0 inch Aluminum Upper Links. These are mated with time-tested Rock Krawler brand Krawler Joints with a 1.25 inch thread and 9/16 inch hole and matching jam nuts.
These are the same joints shipped in nearly every Rock Krawler lift kit so you know they stand up to the test of time and abuse...not to mention there are millions of them on the streets. Each link is threaded with both a Right Hand thread and a Left Hand thread at opposite ends so it is easy to adjust the length for fine tuning. We've also included wrench flats on each end of the aluminum link so you can easily tighten your jam nuts without marring the aluminum.
If you already have the steel version of this kit, this is a direct replacement for those links however the rod ends for the steel kit cannot be used with the aluminum lengths because they will not be the correct length.
From there, you can add on additional components to attach the links to the vehicle if you haven't already purchased them previously. To do the full 3-link conversion you will need the HD Crossmember with integrated Link Mounts, the 3-Link Frame Mount Bracket, and the Adjustable Truss Upper Link Mount that attaches to a flat top truss.
This bracket replaces and attaches where the OEM passenger side axle UCA bracket used to be. These components are all offered separately as an add-on item since many have either already purchased some of these items, or some of these brackets are included in other kits such as our JK 1 ton swap kits. If you need everything, just click the check boxes next to the appropriate accessories
If you are using one of our JK 1 Ton Swap Kits, this system works the same you just won't need the Adjustable Truss Upper Link Mount
To complete a full swap, simply add Springs/Shocks or Coilovers, and extended brake lines and you are dialed in!
