The HD X-Member from JKS replaces the chassis-mounted crossmember – and transfer case skid plate, if installed – with a much stronger, more protective design that is capable of supporting the full weight of the vehicle. Unlike the factory components, which often behave like rock magnets, our HD X-Member is specifically designed to slide over obstacles instead of stopping the vehicle in its tracks!
The new crossmember easily bolts to the original mounting location, and is constructed of 2" x 4" rectangular tubing with a 0.250" material thickness for increased strength and integrity. The new, heavy duty skid plate is formed from 1.25" x 0.120" round structural tubing and thick 3/16" plate steel. The entire assembly is fused together with deep penetrating MIG welds and powdercoated for protection from corrosion.
The JKS HD X-Member even provides additional ground clearance by shifting the transfer case upward approximately 1/4" on vehicles with manual transmissions, and approximately 5/8" on automatic equipped vehicles. The versatile design accommodates all Jeep® Cherokee XJ transfer cases, as well as the Atlas II™ by Advanced Adapters.

Price: $300.00
Pros: * Awesome heavy duty construction * Much more elegant than the stock crossmember and transfer case guard
Cons: * Heavier than stock unit
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got sick of seeing that stock crossmember hanging down under my Jeep, with the unsightly and not very tough transfer case guard.

This JKS heavy duty crossmember is the bomb. When you pick it up, you KNOW it's made strong. I have yet to try suspending the entire weight of my XJ on this crossmember, but I have no doubt that it could hold it just fine.

It looks SO much better than the stock unit. In fact, you can't really see it at all from the side of the vehicle (2" lift) unless you bend down to really take a look.

There are no sharp edges on it to catch on rocks, logs, etc.
