    Ok, I know I've begged for this before but I figure if I keep asking, maybe it will come true some day. 4x4 Iron was making doubler crossmembers before they went out of business. Nobody else has stepped up to the plate to provide these that I know of. I will probably have Joe who is working over at HAD fab me up one from a stock crossmember, but I sure wish ORD would come up with a good one similar to 4x4 Iron's one. I know when we spoke Stephen you said that there were so many variations in the measurements between frame rails, but even a kit, or one that didn't have the holes drilled yet for the frame mounting would still be great in my book. Your new engine crossmember is a step in that direction.... Don't make me keep begging, I get enough practice at home since I've been married for 23 yrs...............:doah:

    If you are thinking of beta testing one, I would hold up my hand to be a candidate..... You know, because I am a team player and will take one for the group......

    I just put in my doubler and can only make one of the stock crossmembers work:( . I would really love it if someone would at least make a kit for a better crossmember set up. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease.:D

    Yeah, me too ... it's the only thing keeping me from buying my Doubler!



    Not really:wink1:
    But a crossmember kit or parts to fab your own sounds nice.
