60 HYDRO RAM MOUNT

Artec Industries is excited to announce our Front 60 Hydraulic Ram Mount. This heavy duty ram mount 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 in its most effective and strongest location - close to the axle center line not high above it, and yet protects it from the rocks with the integrated 1/4" 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 ram mount also extends end-to-end of the axle tube reinforcing the axle itself against bending and shearing. The gusseting design reinforces the ram mount to protect against damage from impact.

Features include:

  • 1/4" mild steel ram mount and gussets. Precision Laser cut and CNC bent for great fitment.*
  • Ram Mount and Gussets feature drainage holes for easy cleaning and reduced weight.
  • Ram Mount doubles as an axle skid plate, allowing protection for your ram and tie rods and spans the length of the axle tube for more reinforcement against bending and shearing.
  • Incorporates an additional 1/4" thick bolt on skid plate in front of differential to allow easy removal of gears. Skid plate is bolted using included countersunk bolts which hold up to trail damage better than other style bolts and don't get hung up on obstacles.
  • Fits both PSC Motorsports and Howe Performance* doubled ended hydraulic rams.
NOTE: This kit requires general welding and fabrication skills. Welding should only be done by a competent welder. Artec Industries implies no guarantees or warranties and is not liable for improper installation.
*Some grinding and fitment may be required when installing this kit. Every axle varies slightly and some fabrication may be required.

MODEL NOTE: This truss is intended for Ford 60 KINGPIN axles from 85-91.5.

 

 It will also work for Balljoint axles from 92-97 and Superduty Axles from 99-Present with minor modifications to the Truss/Ram Mount and heavy modifications to the casting for models 05-Present.

 

What Axle do I have?

Chevy Kingpin has 4.5" of passenger side axle tube

Dodge Kingpin has 3.0" of passenger side axle tube

Ford 78-79 Kingpin has ~6.0" of driver side axle tube

Ford 85-91.5 Kingpin has 3.0" of driver side axle tube

Ford 92-97 Balljoint has 3.0" of driver side axle tube

Ford 99-04 Superduty Balljoint has ~1.5" driver side axle tube

Ford 05+ Superduty Balljoint has basically no exposed driver side axle tube

 

 

 

Dodge and Chevy front 60s are very similar, and in many cases fairly interchangeable - both parts and entire assemblies. Differences do exist, and some are:

 

1) All Chevy 60s are kingpin knuckle, whereas early (79-93 ) Dodge are kingpin and later (94+ ) are balljoint (and undesirable)

 

2) All Chevy 60s are internal style lockout / drive flange bearing hubs, whereas early (79-89 ) Dodge are external, and later Dodge (90-93) are internal.

 

3) Dodge and Chevy outer kingpin knuckles are very similar, and either will bolt to the other axle, but they are not identical - tie-rod placement is different - the Dodge mounts the TRE about an inch and a half higher. Tie rod end taper is the same for all Chevy, Dodge up to 93, and 78-79 Ford. 85+ Ford is smaller to 99, then 2000+ Ford SuperDuty is larger and SupeDuty specific.

 

4) Chevy leaf spring pads are 3 inches wide and 32 inches apart (center-pin to center-pin), Dodge are 2.5 inches wide and 32.5 inches apart.

 

5) All SRW Chevy 60s are 69" wide wheel-mounting-surface to wheel-mounting-surface (wms-wms). Most SRW Dodge are 67" wide, although some are reportedly 69" wide too. A Dodge DRW 60 is 75.5" wms-wms.

 

6) Chevy rotors are 1.5" thick, early dodge rotors are 1.25" thick, but the calipers are identical. Dodge 60s from the CTD years (90-ish to 93) have 1.5" rotors.

 

7) Dodge 60s from the CTD years (90-ish to 93) have a higher tie rod location than the older Chevy.
