Yeah, it does -- but take off the t-bar cover and see if the cross member is really bent or just the cover is deformed.

looks to me like the cover is just bent maybe one of the bolts came out and the cover was bent while u were off-roading? Cuz if the X-member was messed up looks like the T-bar would be sittin at a weird angle.

The first and second pic are the best.. the cover is tight on the bottom. I never looked that close before cause when I did it back in July I wrote it off as being the cover, but now from this angle, it sure seems very tweaked...

Not me, thats for sure... thats actually from slaming a large rock going faster than I should have been down a stair step on a black diamond trail in Big Bear going to get a disabled vehicle... Thought it was just the gaurd untill I got a better angel on it today... 8months after I did it...

As for a new crossmember, this guy is going to be goining on after my torsions are gone...
