YJ Center Crossmember Replacement

Does anyone have any experience with replacing the center crossmember on a YJ, I was looking for a gas tank leak and decided to lower it to look. The member is pretty bad and needs to be replaced but I have not see much on the topic?

Any threads out there I am missing?

There are many build threads out there where new cross memebers were fabbed up using steel tube. Way beyond me to build but I have seen them. I know you can buy them as well. Take a look at Quadratech to see whats available if you have the skill you might be able to use the pictures as a guide.

That is exactly what I need, I am not welder but I would think I can find someone local to weld it on at a fair price.

Thanks for the help.

Good I can help, I was researching cause I need the same thing. Mine is not that bad but the driver side is rusted badly. When you do that crossmember try a new tank skid at the same time since you have to drop the gas tank..........
