Who makes a Ford 9 truss

Where can I get a truss for a ford 9" that is the racing style that welds to the back of the housing, it needs to be the full width of the housing, someone told me summit had these, but I couldn't find them on there site. Had all sorts of problems bending tubes forward with the dana 44 axles with a mountain off road traction bar, so am switching to the 9 because I already have the detroit and nodular housing, just wanted to weld the truss on first, and didn't want to use tubing. Thanks Marc

You want one that touches wheel bearing to wheel bearing.
The one Summit/jegs sells, just touches the center, and it for drag crap, not 4 wheeling IMO.

I believe the one strange engineering sells touches the entire length of the housing.

a truss that welds to the top of the axle will do much more to prevent your axle from smiling or frowning.

I am loving the front control arms



There should be some kind of brace on the bend but that's not bad for hi clearance for the tires and rocks
