Rear frame crossmember

Hey guys, I'm looking for a replacement rear frame crossmember for my jeep yj. I was looking into just getting channel iron because it is cheaper and I can just drill the gas tank and body mount holes into it. I was wondering if you guys know where I could find channel iron with the right dimensions or if there were any places where I could find a cheaper OEM replacement possibly? Thanks

Pretty common rot-spot.
Look for someone parting a yj & see if they’ll cut that section out for you.

Fabrication with new flat steel channel since it's going to be welded on. Make sure the surrounding frame members are in better shape.

Is there anywhere online that you'd recommend getting the steel from to fabricate something like that? I dont have any places I can get stuff like that from 😞

Quadratec sells a Safe T Cap rear X-member for $190.00. By the time you buy the raw materials and have it formed, I expect you'll be in deeper than $200.00.
Then, you still have to have it installed.

let us know what you end up doing. Post some pics.

Good Luck, L.M.
