2000 Grand Cherokee Transmission Crossmember

Hi, repair shop said I needed to replace the transmission cross member on my 2000 Grand Cherokee. Said it is still structurally stable, but there is good deal of rust in middle.

1. do I need to replace?
2. where can I find one? Called every salvage yard and seems only luck so far has been the dealer.

Thanks,
-D

1. depends how bad it is. pics? they said it was "structurally stable" so you might be able to clean it up.

If its surface rust, and just flaking, I would try to clean it up. A wire brush on even just a drill may work. Or you can start with 60 grit sandpaper and lightly work your way down. There are plenty of preservatives and restoration products on the market to choose from. I've used Eastwood Rust Converter and then Rust Encapsulator with good results on my undercarriage, shock towers, etc.

If you end up needing one I could probably ship you the rust free one in my garage.

You'd have to cover shipping though.

Let me know.

look on ebay or LKQ parts. They are a nationwide salvage company. I cant believe you cant find one. They made millions of WJ's and there are plenty in the salvage yards.

I've used "row52.com" to keep track of WJs as they hit the local pick n pulls. (Someone always gets to that tow hitch first, though).

If new is $2-300, and yours is still structurally stable, I'd be inclined to wait until a wreck shows up at the junkyard. Couldn't be more than $50.
