Front range cross member breaking!

My FROR cross member broke at some point recently. This is super fucking aggravating as I'm leaving for PA on Thursday to wheel at Rauch Creek. I havent even hit the thing more that twice! Im not running duals or anything either. Why would this break happen?-sorry for the crappy cell phone pic

It can happen if the bolts are loose or from a hard hit. It can also happen if you have bad motor mounts and expect that crossmember to do all the work locating everything.

Check your motor mounts.

So weld it back together, add some flat bar around the perimeter for strength, and carry on.

Too simple.

Where else is it going to break? Look at the design - it's very well braced on the sides, so if you have bad motor mounts, it's going to flex (and eventually crack) in those exact spots.

I've been running the FROR crossmember Ring for about 2 years now attached to triple cases at 501:1 with a Supercharged 2.7l Tacoma engine and it has yet to fail like this. It is an awesome product, I've gained about 1/2 foot of ground clearnace, and I've recommended it to many, many people.

Maybe there was just some fluke problem with the steel used there? It is not supposed to fail like that.

Here's another thread. Brian also offers some suggestions. Mine hasn't broken, yet.
