K5 crossmembers?

Seen this pic on another thread, so hope nobody gets offended. There are 2 crossmembers in the transfer case area.....wasn't sure what they are there for, thought there was only one, but in the pic there are 2.

Re: K5 crossmembers?

Had a stock t-case skidplate and the extra crossmember here, but went with this setup. Way cleaner look, I think.Name:  100_0503.jpg

Re: K5 crossmembers?

Is your photo of a stock skid plate? I am trying to figure out a way to replicate what you are showing in the photo.

I never even thought of that. I like it. I think it would make exhaust a little simpler too.

The skid plate in post #6 looks like the Hickey style, which is reproduced: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Hickey-NP20...AAAOSwTuJYwKrx
