    I need frame help

    hey guys
    i'm in the process of getting my jeep on the road, but i have to do some frame repairs. I've tried searching the web for a replacement crossmember that goes in front of the fuel tank that the fuel tank sidplate bolts onto. I've had no luck finding one and I'm wondering if there is one available. This is for a 1994 YJ.
    Thanks
    Josh

    The cross member farthest back is fairly easy to make. I made the one shown in the pictures out of 5 x 2 x 1/8 rectangular tube that I cut in half length-wise and added the other bits & pieces using 2 x 1/8 flat.

    You can buy an OEM replacement from the dealer ( I work at Kitchener Frame, the old Budd plant, and we made the frames for the YJ's we still ship parts to Jeep once in a while) I don't know what it would cost, but it shouldn't be too much!
