I don't see a removable center section on that cross member. It looks like you'll have to remove the entire cross member including dropping your long arms to remove the transmission if it's ever necessary. Welding the cross member will make it much harder to service.
good point.....didnt notice that

Good point. I didn't even notice that before. I just assumed the long arm brackets were separate from the cross member. But they do appear to be one solid piece.

It doesn't bother me much since I probably wouldn't have welded it anyway. But yeah, kinda takes the welding option right out of the picture now. Ill hit them up and let them know about it though.
