what crossmember? The t-case is bolted to the transmission and free-hangs. Transmission crossmembers are the same 2wd to 4wd.

it came off a rear end with only 18000 miles...i dont care where it comes from as long as it works...hell most of the parts i get for my truck are junkyard parts...the egr sensor i replaced a year ago i got from there..the throttle position sensor i got 2 years ago...so if i buy a caliper or brake cylinder from there and it works fine i will use it...
