well i went to install the tranny cossmember from kp today and guess what i found out.
the kp one doesnt match the tranny mount on my truck since its a manual tranny.
should would have been nice for them to point that out thats its for autos only on their site.
but owell i made it work. the height is actually 1/2 smaller than my stock one so we welded a 1/2 plate to it and gusseted it then drilled a hole in the plate for the tranny mount to mount to.
its sits 2 1/4 towards the back of the truck from center to center.

Pretty sure you could've went with a different year and saved some money...

99's and some 00's had even X-members, and i believe a F-body x-member will work with some minor modifications as well and you couldve ran a 6spd to increased mpg while your at it!
