    I didnt build it, someone else built it and was using it then decided that they were going to do something else frame/truck wise so I bought it when he parted his.

    Here are the pics of it when he was making it.

    Maybe he will see this and chime in.

    i have a moo unit. all i can say is it didnt fit good at all and i had to mod the hell out of it. and the welds looked like crap. took forever to ship it also. bla bla bla story. but once i got it i said if i knew it was that easy i would have built my own unit.

    just look at some pics and weld up your own. :weld: :hack: :grind: :woot:

    Are you talking about the MOO unit? Mine fit like a glove and the welds were perfect.

    yep he gave me some big crap story on why it didnt ship in time and also forgot tracking # tell lots of info :D . then he didnt folow my simple directions, i said no paint on it as custom paint would be put on it. i got it all painted. i wont say any more just wasnt happy at all. plus now the oilpan i have wont clear it so it will most likly come out for a homebuilt unit.

    All i can say about MOO Crossmember was. It ship quickly. which was awesome. However it was not an exact fit. It was not wide enough. Had to modify it a tad. And it pulled my frame rails in quite a bit. Instead of bolting in we welded it.

    did you look at the first pic? it's a cross member for the engine that gives you more clearance.
