Tansmission Cross Member

Ok so i can't stand looking at the ugly trans crossmemeber that ford put in, it hangs too low and just is unappealing to the eye. I have seen a lot of lowered rangers with a cross member that goes inside the frame rails to make more room for clearence. I like this look of not seeing the cross memeber.

Anyone know where i can pick one of these up at?

do you have torsion bars or coils?

I saw the clean one you were talking about on someone elses truck last weekend. I need to do something about mine but don't have the time or materials right now.

Illusive Design and Fabrications :: shop :: Crossmembers :: Ford Ranger 98+ Raised Transmission Crossmember :: english

Im running a different crossmember, but my buddy recently bought one from the same guy i did, and it took forever to recieve it. Brian at Illusive Fab is an awesome guy. And it looks like free shipping on it, too! good deal.

If he and I didn't do business with a flaky-*** 'friend', he would have his Edge components painted and on the truck already. He still has my axle too....gotta love it when people ignore your phone calls and txt's.

The one i linked i think it best because it looks like you don't have to mess with exhaust clearance like sooo many people that have the same one i bought (the guy from RPS). But $136 shipped for the Illusive is one hell of a deal.

PS It is sad you need it for lifting....lower that sucker!
