Easy to install, can get it with a built in drivetrain lift if needed, I got mine with 2", rock solid. I dropped my truck down on a nice sized rock and couldn't even tell where I hit, if it wasn't there I would have known by the big gouge in my frame!

No mounts only the bolts to hold the mounts to the crossmember and the bolts for the crossmember to the skid. No mounts and no frame bolts.

but it does bolt up to the existing holes in the frame right?
Absolutely! Thats why you dont get new frame mounting bolts or a new tranny mount......You reuse your old stuff, cause the x-member bolts right it.

I'm not sure who Bud has worked with as distributors, but I'm pretty sure for you west coast guys, that Marlin and Inchworm carry them.

Getting one from Bud would be great.....but the shipping from NY to so Cal/west coast may stop someone from buying one.

Thats why you get one from inchworm or Marlin. Granted Bud may get a smaller cut if you go this route, but its still better than him getting nothing because someone didnt buy one because of shipping. Plus it gets more of his products out there, which in the long run can only help him along. :D

Wellll... I dunno as I agree. The stock xmember is stamped steel, very thin. Buds is very thick - thus the xmember mounting bolts end up with very little bite into the frame mounting holes. I opted for all new high-grade, 45mm long replacements from Fastenal for about $7 with washers.

Yup! they're made out of the same steel.
