    Chevy/GMC Truck is about the only company that made easy to find crossmembers you are looking for /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif If you add a t-case skid plate (factory or aftermarket) you should not have too many problems with it.

    Ok, didnt understand what you were looking for exactly I guess... I haven't seen much more than homemade crossmembers people have made themselves. You could take a good factory crossmember and add square tubing under/over it for help.

    How did you tear it up? hanging up on Rocks or ?

    yea in a rock garden once I got into one spot there was no good line out so I had no choice but to do some damage to the bottom. its a simple fix I just dont have the time to spend on building a badass tube crossmember.
