Fitment: 2007-2014 2nd gen Chevrolet Silverado 1500 & 3rd gen GMC Sierra 1500, Drivers Side rear frame.
Our SafeTCap® ART-168 was designed to repair the frame at the bump stop over the rear axle. This part is 24.75″ in length and fits between the rear fuel tank crossmember(ART-139-2) and the rear shock cross member(ART-140-2). The ART-168 comes completely assembled with the rear axle bump stop mount and is fully welded by our AWS certified welders. This frame repair kit does not come with a new urethane bump stop, either a new urethane bump stop can be installed or you can use your original bump stop by removing it and remounting it to the ART-168 after installation using the m10-1.5 weld nut provided.
We’ve engineered this frame repair section with the “DIY” in mind, jus remove the original bump stop mount from the frame using a torch, plasma, or cut-off tool, then weld the ART-168 to the upper most part of the frame.
Detailed, Step-by-Step installation instructions are provided with each frame repair kit we offer, and we also provide over the phone technical and installation assistance to all of our customers and potential customers if needed.
