Fitment: 2007-2014 2nd gen Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Reg Cab & 3rd gen GMC Sierra 1500 Reg Cab, Set of both driver and passenger sides
Our SafeTCap® ART-169 Mid-Rear Frame Section was created to fit the regular cab, 2nd gen Silverado 1500, and 3rd gen Sierra 1500. We’ve designed the ART-169 to cap the frame beginning right after the rear cab mount and ending just before the rear fuel tank cross member (ART-139-2). This part is approximately 31″ long and will cap the entire height of the frame leaving only .75″ of the top of the original frame to weld the SafeTCap® frame kit to. The ART-169 is designed to be installed without the need to remove the forward bed mount and/or spring mount from your frame, depending on the severity of the rust. The ART-169 has removeable plates to notch around the bed mount and original spring mount by just continuing the cut lines, see pictures for details.
Our ART-169’s are manufactured from only domestic 11ga steel. Comes with detailed installation instructions
If you need to replace or repair the rear leaf spring mount, see our listing for the ART-171 Rear Spring Mount.

Fantastic high quality product. They were super easy to work with. Please note the Mid-Rear Frame Section (ART-169-S) Set is designed for Regular Cab GM trucks. But they WILL work on Extended and Crew cab with slightly different modification to the pre-cuts.
