I love that dam bumper!

If they ever design it as a direct bolt on for the 3G PW I will be forced to buy it!

That truss looks like their low profile truss version not the one they sell as kit for owner installation.

That's a huge loss of clearance if you are on 33's or 35's.

As far as I know, it is a direct bolt on. The only thing that was mentioned was having to notch the frame a little.

Have you put yours on yet? And if so I do you like the install and does it get in the way of anything and how much clearance did you lose? Also any pics of install. I saw the pics of when u received it but none on the truck yet! Something else to spend money on!

I would do a Carli truss if I had to do it again. I love the Thuren style truss however someone can fuck it up. There's a lot of user error involved In the Thuren truss like mine (this is what I ran into) my installed told me ya ya ya ya I know what I'm doing and low and behold he welded the effin thing to the bottom of the diff not behind the diff face. So I lost another 1/2" of ground clearance maybe alittle more then if it was in the right spot. Also because he installed it there I had to butcher the back and fill it with weld and "build" it up in case it contacts anything it won't rip right off the bottom of the diff. Thuren designed it to take a hit and distribute a forward hit up into the diff so if you do hit something in an o shit moment the diff cradles the truss so you slide up and over. I think a Carli truss would be way easier to install and would give you mounting surface for your factory steering stab skid plate. Plus it's a better design for a rock crawler as there's no round tube to get hung up on a jagged rock and really hang u up.

I bent the bottom of the Carli diff cover so hopefully if I do contact something fast it will fire me up and over it. Looks like poop though. Never trust Russian fabricators or Crew fabrication in pottageville Ontario.
