Looks beefy! Is there any advantage with the tnt truss over the artec?

It came with the axles I bought off a friend of mine. He was getting ready to install it, when he came across a really good deal on a rock bouncer. I think it's over priced for what it is. He paid $500 for it but it's a full truss all the way across with all the bracketry. I need to cut everything of the axle. Any specific differences I don't know. Really looking forward to welding it on though.

Got some shop time in the past couple days. Painted the tummy tuck cleaned up some of the control arms. Also scored a np231 with the terra flex 4:1 kit and a jb sye already installed.

Control arms are ready for paint now. Only thing left besides painting them and re assemble is finding the correct o ring size that sits inside the arms. Each one has two on the female end. It's a strange size that I can't source locally. Waiting to hear back from Teraflex on the ring size. Not sure if anyone's ever dealt with their customer service. They are really nice to deal with and are more than willing to help solve an issue or question.

O-rings on a control arm? Haven't seen that design.

Yup the older ones have them. They the joints are fixed and the tube rotates. The o rings are to keep tge water out and the grease in. I heard back from teraflex and they are sending me all new ones for free.
