GUSSET KIT

The X3 bombproof gusset kit is a must for hard drivers or people that want to keep their machine straight and true. It adds rigidity and strength to the front of the machine and is going to be a must for people wanting to add a winch.

We started our kit with a higher-grade steel than most use, grade 50 over the common A36. Grade 50 has a higher yield and tensile strength than A36 plate, combined with a lower weight making it a stronger and better option for our gussets. While A36 material isn't a terrible option it’s also not our first but what others tend to use due to material cost. It tends to stretch and when you're trying to use this material as a gusset it's less than ideal. You won't find many places advertising their material choices and why for this reason.

Our kit consists of 5 individual pieces plus hardware.  Our race plate is included and bolts in place of the studs for the front lower a-arms using form threaded 4130 chromoly weld nuts that we make in house. Hardware is supplied and this allows for very easy service and removal of a arms in the future. 

We've created a plate system that ties the front mounting points along with the upper rear mount together in full via 3 different welded assemblies, NO ONE else in the industry does this. The front of the X3 is what we call a floating front end. The front of the chassis ahead of the front a-arms attaches via the front arms and is only supported by the radiator. If you were to pull on that that portion of the frame you're pulling on the front suspension bolts only, it’s a risky move. Our front welded assembly keeps that front section from twisting and also from pulling solely on the a-arm bolts. This is the same void in the frame where the front of the a-arms pivot. The front of the frame no longer floats at this point and is tied into firmly with the rest of the chassis. Above the diff we have 2 different pieces of metal that tie the rear upper pivot point to both front a arm points, this is a very important piece and only CT Race Worx offers this. This not only strengthens the frame from the bolts trying to pull out but it greatly reduces the chance of the frame twisting.  During pulling forces this can also uses transfers energy to the rear upper a arm mounting plate to help spread the load and increase strength.  The single plate over the diff that ties the upper mounting points together will keep the rear upper arm pivot of the chassis from twisting under hard impacts.  The final plate piece is additional reinforcement to the rear lower mounting points of the suspension and finishes the gusset kit.

Standard install time is roughly 5 hours and a mechanical background or general handy work is advised. The majority of the front suspension needs to be removed.  The diff does NOT need to be removed unless some of the factory hardware needs to be replaced.  Detailed instructions with pictures are included.

Key Points:

  • Front Diff does not need to be removed for installation
  • Full Tie in of mounting points creating the most complete and strongest gusset kit on the market
  • Grade 10.9 Metric Hardware
  • "Race Plate" is added as a replacement to the front lower studs and acts as weld nuts to very easily installation and service down the road
  • Easier installation than our previous gusset kits
  • Works with standard, smartlock and full billet front diffs

FRONT UPPER SHOCK MOUNT

Our front upper shock mount brings a great look and added strength to the front of the X3.

The stock front upper shock mount on the X3 is not a true double shear, meaning that the bolt that mounts the shock is not supported on the front and back side. This puts a tremendous amount of force and leverage on the bolt and the frame.  The rear supports all the force that the suspension throws at it and its less than ideal.  On hard impacts or front bottom outs it will try to push the factory shock mount up and back, we've seen it several times which is why we created this product back in late 2016.

The brace bolts on top of the frame and is held on with 4 bolts.  Our sheet metal bracket is made from a heavy gauge grade 50 steel that is very rigid and strong, created for bracing and gusseting.  The vertical sheet metal pieces tie our billet bracket into the top of the frame.  The routing of the radiator hoses and wiring stay the same as it did from the factory and do NOT require the radiator hoses to be removed.  There is also nothing to restrict the exiting airflow behind the radiator.

Our 6061 billet shock mount was designed to mimic the factory bracket.  We wanted to support the bracket with our brace that runs down to the chassis as far on the outside as possible.  The further out we mounted it, the more control we would have over the leverage of the bracket trying to twist and move vs having a centre-based mount.  The sheet metal lower brace bolts to the billet aluminium upper piece via (2) 1/2" grade 8 bolts.  This will also be the same place that the optional limit straps will be connected.  The radiator mounts stay in the same place as the factory parts which gives us a very strong and extremely clean mounting setup that holds factory dimensions.

This is KOH, XC and DAKAR Proven to add strength and rigidity.

Key features:

  • Limit straps can be added by clicking here
  • Shock reservoirs can be run in the stock position flipped in or flipped out
  • Radiator lines do not have to be removed to install this kit
  • Lower brace design is the most rigid on the market and doesn't restrict exiting airflow
  • 100% bolt on
