    is there any way to still get one of these, and how much were they running while still in business? any good kits for sale?
    is it worth the money or should i just have a custom one made?
    i kinda liked the idea that i could take if off if say I trash the vehicle or replaced the entire rear 14 bolt...

    the later 14 also had pressed in tube with very little if any weld actualy holding the tube in place, i would want one to prevent the tube twisting or comeing right out.

    That truss wouldnt help you at all with twisting or comming out.......Its bolted around the tube..not welded.

    Even if it's not welded (which you could fix) it'd be a hell of a clamping force that most certainly would help with the aforementioned issued.

    not really it uses what looks to be, what we call in the dirt car world "bird cages" around the axles. they look like they were just bought pre-fab and the plates and tubing just added on. bird cages are used to allow ladder bar suspensions to let the axle float inside them. pinion angle is set by a third link on top of the diff and lateral movment controlled by a panhard. real common in replacing factory leaf sprung sus. in frame cars and tubed metric chasis cars. so... the only thing locating the truss is the plates behind the diff cover and pinion support on the 14b. my guess is so that it is truly a bolt on feature. sure it would help the bending fator (if you feel thats an issue) but as far as using for link tabs no thanks. it does have a pile of bolts in it, but i dont like where all the stress would end up. baiscly it looks all cool, you can paint it some bright color and people oggling your rig on 40's will be impressed by all the tubind stretching around the axle and think "wow! this rig must really be hard core look at all that tubing on there. i bet it needs it with those big ol' tires on there":D does provide a good place to mount shocks in the triangulated form.

    Here is a pic of my weld in truss that I got from BTF.It's not as bulky as the MOO one plus it's only about $200.The main reason I got it was I need something solid to mount my anti wrap bar to.

    hes got a cutting valve. he can lock each wheel independant of each other allowing him to pretty much spin on a dime

    then whats the point? if you can lock up one rear tire the you can use it to pivot. other wise i cant really see locking up just the front or just the rear:confused:
