Question Transmission Cross Member

I think that I am going to have some issues with my front driveshaft hitting the tranmission cross member and trying to think ahead here...
I did a search and am coming up with alot of talk about Rock 4x and Trail Tough having a high clearance cross member and some others just modifing the stock one.... but not alot of pics.

Anyone have pics of the after market cross member or how they modified the original one ??

Thank you in advance !

Don't waste your time tryin to modify the stock cross member. Just buy the Rock4xfab high clearence cross member. It is worth the money.
Look close and you can see it.

Just thought of something else.... Petroworks did the engine swap (1.6 16v) in this and was wondering if they did anything to change the transmission mounts that would effect how this kit would bolt in ????

Good to know. Thank you for all the info !!
I figured it sounded too easy but sounds like it is just an easy fix.

If your interested I have for sale a Hi clearance system from Rock 4x. It is brand new never installed with instructions. I am in the process of installing a automatic transmission and will not need the unit. Let me know if you are interested.

I notched mine out with the plasma cutter. My buddies has his completely cut out with the transmission on one end and the tcase mount on the other. I am interested in how its going to hold up when we really put it through its paces. I know its already been wheeled prior to him getting it but don't know to what degree.

just got an email back from Petroworks... they lower the Engine and Transmission 3/4" when they do the swap.....
I wonder if the Rock 4X cross member will still work ???

here are some pics of the Petroworks transmission mount to accomidate the 3/4" lower mounting....
