No Limit X-Member Kit on a TF

No Limit X-Member Kit on a TF.
I'm going to post this here as I couldn't find any pictures or information about it other then the No Limit web site!
The C-channel boxing plates and X-plates look like they would be a much stronger setup. My engine dynoed out with 517hp so it is a little bit more than the factory V-8. So I took and completely stripped the truck again, and started putting in the square tubing from one side of the frame to the other. I thought it would be smart to X everything, only to find out that it was a big mistake and it raised the passenger side rear corner 1/4 inch do to the welding of the last X piece, so I removed the X and everything went back to normal.

Next was cleaning and sanding inside of frame rails, then sealing with Rust-Oleum gloss black, then install.

Looks like you did a nice job. You will be shocked at the ride quality improvement when you drive it again.

I guess its time for some updating on the install!
Got it all welded up and the reinforcement bars removed.
