    Yep... After last night's little trek in the hills trying to get a sammi unstuck and getting myself stuck on that huge boulder, I had to get out the 5 pounder this morning and do a little body tweaking so the doors would open again. Worked pretty well. But while under it I noticed I have a pretty badly cracked front cross member. Right where it does a 90 up to the motor mount. Should I V groove and weld this or replace the cross member?

    I had a crack in my frame at one of the engine mount bolts. I had the crack welded back up. I watched him do it, and he V grooved it some at the top, and also drilled a couple holes. I know one was at the bottom of the crack. I think he called it stop drilling the crack. He then welded it back up, and it is fine so far.
