The stock transmission x-member will not hold up to off-road conditions and is prone to cracking. This is why we came out with our transmission x-member. This is 100% bolt on and comes powder coated. We also incorporated a strut support system to help stiffen the chassis in the transmission area and reduce frame flex and twisting. You will need to drill two 1/2″ holes in the frame and we supply you the Grade 8 hardware.
We offer these in 2 versions to match the bolt pattern on the frame. The ’98-99 version has 4 bolts on each side and the ’00-12 has 3 bolts on each side. Both use the OEM hardware at the stock frame and transmission mounts.
This only fits coil sprung 2wd Rangers, not torsion bar front ends.
