1999-2006 Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 1500.
This is an OEM style direct replacement for the crossmember located forward of the rear axle that supports the rear end of the gas tank. Detailed installation instructions are included.
Our crossmember tubes are made from Heavy Gauge steel and Mandrel bent just like the Original, We DO NOT use Thin Wall Exhaust tubing to make our crossmembers!
Pre-welded on the cross tube are the left side inside mount plate, the right side upper shock mount, the fuel tank strap hanger bracket, and the fuel tank support mount bracket with new bolt included. The two outer end plates and right side inside mount plate are sent loose for ease of installation.
WE MAKE IT EASY TO MAKE IT SAFE!
We designed this replacement crossmember with the do it yourself installer in mind. No need to remove the truck bed, just remove the old shock, remove the fuel tank (always a good idea when welding on a frame!) cut the remaining crossmember away, notch out the frame, slide the replacement in place, weld it solid, and reinstall your tank and new shocks.
Our SafeTCap line of products are designed and manufactured in our Cranston, RI facility. Our products are made from heavy gauge steel that meets or exceeds manufactures specifications.
If you have a 2500 or 2500HD see our listing for part # ART-139-HD.
