In response to requests from our loyal customers, we’ve designed this rear frame section with the “DIY” in mind, the ART-167 Rear Frame Section caps over the existing frame on the Chevy Silverado 1500, and GMC Sierra 1500, both 1st and 2nd gen, 1999-2014. The rear leaf spring hangar will need to be removed from the frame to allow the ART-167 to be installed.
Each ART-167 Rear Frame Section comes with installation instructions and 4 x 7/16″-14 HCS and flanged nuts to re-attach the rear leaf spring hangar. This part is 18.5″ inches long and should be welded onto the original frame.
Our SafeTCap® ART-167 Rear Frame Section is made from only American 11ga steel.
