helping my buddy do his ex cab truck and was wondering about the gas tank cross member closest to the rear end, we raised it 1 3/4" to raise the gas tank, but we still have to cut it in half and make a hoop for the drive shaft..

question is... is that normal? and do you guys have some pictures of yours?


its diff then on my scsb i just section a chunk out of it

Hmm maybe I raised mine so much i didnt have to notch it, i was running a 275/30-24 and it didnt touch layed out. I had a extra half inch of clearing from the rails made for the frame to drag on.

Same with me, just cut out a section and welded in a piece of 4 inch pipe cut in half to fill the notch
Yea that is how my single cab is, for the life of me idk why we have to cut so much of his crossmember
