    can anyone recall if the crossmember at under rear cab wall differs from one piece to two piece rear driveshaft ?

    IE: could i put in a two piece shaft in place of a one piecer if i have the mounting bracket for the carrier bearing ?

    You talking about that little x-member that bolts across under the back of the cab..

    It is not a frame support..it is a hangar for mufflers and cats...

    Take it out if it interferes with the 2 piece drive shaft x=member

    You will need a x=member for a 2wd/2piece drive shaft..you will need to drill and bolt it..stock its rivited, so if you get one at pick n'pull, you will need a battery powered grinder or drill

    Trickey, because it rivits/bolts to the top of the frame rail, and the bed is in the way, so you have to get it at an angle between the frame rails..

    I looked and measured my frame for the same reason... /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
