Bent Crossmember

My Crossmember on my jeep is bent. I hit a big rock when I was climbing and it bent my crossmember up so it pushed up my transfer case and bent my drive shaft. Now when I drive it it vibrates real bad because the drive shaft wobbles. I took it to a mechanic and he said you can't bend that crossmember back out and I can't find a used one. Does anybody know if you can really bend that back down or where I could get a used one from?

I've bent mine more than once. took a sledge hammer to it and beat it back into shape. problem is it tends to bend a lot easier the next time you hit it on a rock. I would suggest upgrading to a better skid/cross member.

He said it has a double wall and would be impossible to bend but you could hit with a sledge and it wouldn't mess anything up?
