Try these guys, they seem to have a huge inventory and stuff I have purchased from them has been reasonably priced. http://www.jwjeep.com/index.html

Take a look at these threads. Sounds like you are missing the piece that attaches to tranny and bolts the trans mount and torque arm.

Are you saying that this is the part you are completely missing?

My CJ7 doesn't have that crossmember either. Guy had a 350 in it and took the entire drivetrain before I bought it. I just bought a 360/T18/D20 to go in it and will need to buy a cross member also. So I'm in the same bucket.

Any suggestions for a solid aftermarket skidplate/tranny crossmember?

He fab's these in 0", 1" or 1.5" drops. I had him make mine without any of the mounting holes for the transmission/torque arm drilled. This way I could align them based upon my engine placement.

Here's a pic with it powder coated:
