Fitment: 2007-2014 2nd gen Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Ext & Crew Cab & 3rd gen GMC Sierra 1500 Ext & Crew Cab, Passenger Side
Our SafeTCap® ART-169X/D-R Mid-Rear Frame Section was created to fit both the Ext & Crew 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 (on the ext. cab frame) 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″ from the top of the original frame to weld the SafeTCap® frame kit. 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 original spring mount by just continuing the cut lines, see pictures for details.
NOTE: When installing this part on only the crew cab (4door) versions you will need to notch the ART-169X/D to fit around the rear cab mount. We decided not to provide notches around the crew cabs rear cab mount on this particular part due to customer request and varying rust conditions based on the location you and your vehicle are in the US.
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.
