Rottenest crossmember ever

It's not that bad Les.....

At least you had something to weld to unlike the pile of rust I see on the floor from the pictures above.

I can't believe you got in that truck to go to the lakes! When you said it was fragile, I didn't think you meant eggshells !!! :)


(And Jamie, you ought to know better.... :angry: )

I bolted the replacement crossmember to the rear tub, welded some tabs on the top of the chassis rail to line it up, then cut out the rot in sections so as to keep everything nice and straight. There was good metal after the curve, so it's repairable at least.




Not too bad considering what it was like. No tow bar brackets though - even they were rotten.

Les. :)

it wasnt too bad tbh, mine was worse before i got it replaced.

i actually had no idea how bad mine was, because it had been filled with body filler many times by the previous owner.
