Awesome Trevor, that would be fantastic. I've also asked BlueBullet to measure his Longhorn. I will go back and triple check the measurement of mine as well.

My measurements were takin inside the frame rail just in front of the stock cross member . On a k10 the frame has to be the same in that area or you wouldn't be able to slide it forward for the 6 cylinder location. Hope this helps.

Right.. I think the frame should be the same height spanning the distance in between the lines below.

Re: DIY4X crossmember fitment

That measurement on mine is 5-1/8" on both sides. I measured right in front of engine cross member.

Re: DIY4X crossmember fitment

So here's my solution for those interested. Kert offered to make me some shorter parts to fit my frame, but that costs $$$, I also could've had it cnc milled locally, but that also costs $$$.

Here it is as received from DIY4X

I went to the shop and picked out my thickest chop saw blade

And sliced the pieces in half,

Here's my height after the cut, just about perfect.

Now ill grind away some of that nice powdercoat, cut a V groove, square it up, and burn it back together with the Lincoln

Re: DIY4X crossmember fitment

Perfect!! That was going to be my suggestion if it came to it.

Re: DIY4X crossmember fitment

I will clamp them in place inside the frame and tack it together in a few places before I weld them up completely. That way it will guarantee a perfect fit.
