I'm going to a flat belly and making my own crossmember and skid plate, so I'm selling my Budbuilt Dual Case Crossmember. This is the older version that was made of a single piece of 3/8th steel, so its super stout. I've litterally had the entire weight of my truck on this thing and it just shrugged it off. It is made for Dual Transfercases, and bolts to the stock frame mounts on any 84' to 95' Pickup or 4runner. It needed a new coat of paint, so I sand blasted most of it down to bare metal, so its ready for whatever cool color you decide to paint it. Comes with all the hardware except the frame mount bolts, for which you can use your stock bolts for no problem.

Also included in this deal is a newly sand blasted and cleaned Trail Gear "Bombproof" T-case mount. They say its lifetime warranty, so you should be good to go for a long long time with this. I only use the one, and just used a stock t-case mount to add a bit of support. The stock sized bolts that hold the t-case to the skid didn't seem big enough, so I drilled and tapped them with a m10 sized hole for added strength. I haven't bought the new hardware yet, but I a quick trip over to AAA Metric and a couple bucks for flush mount socket head bolts isn't too bad.

I'd like to get $250 for this, which is very reasonable I think. A new Bud Built skid is $299 plus shipping, and the Trail Gear T-case mount is $79 plus shipping. If you are interested, shoot me a PM and I'll send my phone number. These are both located at the Club Workshop, which is at 999 Valejo in Denver (on the east side of I-25 near 8th Ave...close to Denver Bumper and Dazbog Coffee) and I will be there all week working on my truck so I'm sure we can get together.

Just curious if you are willing to separate. My buddy is looking for a budbuilt possibly, but has stock motor mounts and thus cannot use the bombproof mount.

If so, let me know what the cost for the xmember is only. If not, no worries!

I think the Bombproof mount should work allright still since it has fairly large poly bushings in it. I can see how that would be an issue though.

How does $200 sound for just the skid plate/crossmember?
