I need to replace rear cross member that has the most rear cab mounts. Can this be bought anywhere?

I donít normally like the Omix stuff, but this is the first one I ran across from Quadratec


https://www.quadratec.com/p/omix-ada...model-vehicles

If you dig around, you may find better aftermarket pieces.

Thanks, I need the bracket right in front of that one. I replaced that one. the bracket I need is the one the rearmost body mounts are located on.

Sorry bout that - when you said the rear most mounts, I thought crossmember...... Seems like I remember the supports sold separately somewhere.....

Throttle Down Kustoms offers a set for 100 bucks - but thatís all of em. Fabbing one would would probly be best. Just match the one on the opposite side.

Good deal on the bracket!!

Omix tends to be made in china crap, but itís hit or miss. Some stuff seems of, others not at all. A lot of the steel parts are soft, but good ones show up. Seems quality control doesnít exist. Frustrating thing is many times they are the only game in town.

The Throttle Down stuff is good stuff. Didnít realize they made the brackets available in singles. Only makes sense to........
