    Has anyone out there went with an ORD engine cross member in their BB swap? After looking at multiple crossmembers and finding them either cracked, twisted, or some combo of the two I finally gave up and got a hold of Stephen and had him send me one of his:crazy: . I figured if a 73-87 would work so should ORDs. My question is, if someone has used this setup do any of the stock holes in the bottom of the frame get used and which ones? If not once I get it done I'll post up on what all was involved. Thanks, OLD DAWG

    The crossmember I'm going to use is just one of ORD's standard high clearance ones with DIY4X HD mounts.
