Default Trans Crossmembers

Guy,

Have you ever thought about making another batch of Mike's trans X-members???? Just curious.

Thanks

Tom

I would be in for one for sure. The ever so slight chance one comes up for sale, they last minutes usually. Never quick enough.

Lighter, lower profile -- for me, just the "cool" factor of having a superior part made by a friend.

Another option: If Guy and Mike aren't going to make any more of them, is there any way we could get the measurements and materials list so we could make our own?

How many pieces would it take to be worth making? Maybe we can start a group buy list.

The socal crossmember was also 12lbs lighter than factory for those of us who feel our trucks are fat.

I would like to see Landon Watson build one.
His control arm cross member is a work of art and should be installed on every drag racing/sled pulling truck. The man can really build some good stuff.
On another note; I got the same kind of response as above for my SoCal cross member and after they were built, I couldn't give them away. After about 2/3 years I finally sold them.

What is this? I don't think I've heard of it before.

Have a link ^ ? I would like to see this control arm / cross member.

On topic, I intend on buying a flush mount cross member for my race truck at some point in the near future being it is so low to the ground now. I doubt it will ever hit anything except possibly bottoming out coming on and off the trailer but if I could gain some clearance and shed some weight at the same time, "Why not"...
