Crossmember

The '73-'87 Chevys have a clearance issue with crossover steering and the factory frame crossmember below the engine. Since this K5 was going to be getting the crossover steering from last year's UA truck, and we had pulled out the engine, Arrington knocked out the factory crossmember to get this Off Road Design motor mount and custom tubular crossmember to fit in between the framerails. This will help us clear our steering, while still providing lots of structural support. The motor mount/crossmember package fixes the steering clearance issue while also providing beefy motor mounts to replace the worn-out factory ones.
