This crossmember kit can definitely simplify the process when doing conversions on your Jeep.
The universal kit mounts to the inside of the frame above the skid plate. It allows the skid plate to be removed without lowering the transmission and transfer case assembly.
This well-engineered kit is designed to eliminate the factory center transmission mount, which will be mounted solid to the supplied plate. Furthermore, the urethane bushings at the ends of the new crossmember will act as the new transmission mount. The factory design was very poorly designed. It acted like a tripod. The engine was mounted solidly with two mounts and the transmission with one mount, which in return, the transmission wants to torque MORE than the engine. This is why guys/gals tear up their transmission mounts or crack their adapter housing. With our well thought out, unique design, you now have FOUR engine and transmission mounts, which will allow everything to torque the same, furthermore, alleviating blown out transmission mounts and cracked adapter housings.
The main tube is made from heavy duty 1 3/4" x .120 wall DOM tubing. The plate, gussets, and tabs are made from CNC cut 1/4" thick HRP&O, USA-made steel, supported by heavy-duty urethane bushings and grade 8 mounting hardware.
NOTE: The main tube included in this kit is sent slightly long, which will need to be cut to length and ends coped to fit bushing assemblies. This kit requires cutting and welding for proper fit.
