Desolate Motorsports Ford 8.8 Rear Axle Truss


This truss will strengthen your Ford 8.8 rear axle and hold up much better to off-road abuse.


This truss is an awesome way to extend the life of your factory Bronco or F-150 rear 8.8 axle. The Ford 8.8 is a good rear axle but does have its limitations. The cast center section has steel axle tubes pressed into it and after heavy off-roading the tubes can break free of the housing and/or bend. This truss and diff cover remedies both issues. The super heavy-duty differential cover is the backbone of the whole package and then our fabricated truss ties everything together with 6 half inch grade 8 bolts.

Labor: In shop install starting at $250 + gear oil.

Note: Sold raw and requires welding. Relocation of factory brake line mount on axle is necessary.
