AMC 20 Truss Review is UP!!!

Many thanks to DirtDog for his assist and hosting on this one.

I've finished the review for the Missouri Offroad Outfitters bolt-on truss for the AMC 20's. They have models available for other axles too, and I've been tickled pink with mine.

As a matter of fact, I spent the majority of the day today thrashing it in our fine North Georgia Sunshine.

Check out the review at:

I would be happy to field questions if anybody has them...

Re: AMC 20 Truss Review is UP!!!

Sorry Jer, some of the original images didn't come through on the published page, working on that now, but here are some to tide you over...
It orients over the top like this:

Clamps over the top of the tubes like this:

Completed clam-shell bracket

Over the top without pinion bracket

Pinion Bracket

Re: AMC 20 Truss Review is UP!!!

See if it's better now. I tightened up the text and added these new pics.(I never had them)
Let me know if it's how you want it.

Re: AMC 20 Truss Review is UP!!!

Thanks DirtDog!!! I have no clue what happened last night, but it seems fine now (where some of the pics were anchoring was kind of funky, and a couple weren't there). I added some supplimental pics in light of the questions I was getting. Your placement and anchors on the new ones are perfect and it gets the point across very well!!! Many thanks again.
