zj high clearance crossmember

I'm looking for a new crossmember for my zj but I can't find any that are sold seperate or fit my needs. Anybody have any suggestions? Right now my factory crossmember the bolts holding my transfer case skid are not tack welded anymore so they just spin. Well 1 does. The other is gone completely, and the one in the frame is loose and not tack welded anymore either. So my skid is held on by 2 bolts and both are loose. (scary, I know) I need a new transmission mount, crossmember and transfer case skid. I got a 94 Laredo with 5.2 231 swap sye I was looking at rustys transfer case skid and it might work but I have no idea on a crossmember and transmission mount. Pics are welcome. If you have a particular setup please post what you have. Thanks.
Edit: I'm also on short arms

My crossmember never had nutserts for skid bolts so I had to fab some metal strips with nuts welded to them, then just slide them inside cross member.

This was a pain in the butt to find. They don't call it a crossmember. They call it a subframe. Its pretty beefy being 1/4" thick. Any thoughts? I don't have long arms and I know this is where they are supposed to link to
