One heck of a paperweight!  How about a couple more pics as you go along.

I got an LTL with that crossmember. Mine is in great shape except for the driveshaft tunnel.  The previous owner had the aluminum front crossmember crack and dropped the engine, in turn the universal joint came up and tore up the tunnel in the crossmember before getting the truck stopped.

Is that $1300 a finished machined crossmember?

That's one impressive thing you found the ability to fabricate.

I have had many parts cast, the difficulty is a good piece for a pattern.

That's for the crossmember as it is in the picture. The ends will have to be machined to whatever width your frame is now and all the holes drilled.
