    Crossmember idea..... here\'s mine

    Hey kiddies, Due to the way I mounted my sliders (see 2nd pic.) I needed to build an additional crossmember to help the whimpy frame out. Any load on the sliders would cause the frame to tweak outward. I built this to tie the two together and it seems to have done the trick. Lemme know if you think it sucks, I wont mind.

    If you were a CHIC like me maybe you would do this!
    It is stuffed up almost level with the frame.

    It also looks like a good place to continue your skid plate to. I like it.

    Looks good Tori, although I think I'd have mounted it back a little bit more and mounted a driveshaft loop to it too. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
