Bent crossmember fix?

I bent my crossmember on my truck by bottoming it out directly on to the crossmember when crawling. Has anyone put on Camburg's X-member? This looks like a direct replacement and I am thinking this could be a good upgrade over my bent crossmember. Let me know what you guys think. For under $300 it seems like a great replacement.

Thanks Guys

Bummer I was afraid of that. They don't say whether it's for and edge or xlt. Anyone know after aftermarket cross members?

I'm thinking that's my only option. Shouldn't be too hard. I'm surprised no other torsion bar owners have an aftermarket transmission crossmember

I'm not talking about the front crossmember. The part that camburg makes and that I am talking about is the transmission crossmember.
