Looking for a crossmember 32 1/2" wide...looking for the type that goes between the cab crossmember and the rears...

Thanks

Make it from a 2X4 1/4 wall tube and 3/16ths side plates if you don't find one.

Thanks! Was thinking of that...split it in the middle, install and weld back up?!?

I've never had to split one. The 3/16" side plates will deflect enough to drive it into place. Then drill through the frame rails, and side plates to bolt everything up tightly.

I don't know what sizes they come in,but the new style 2 piece crossmembers work really slick,and as much as I hate to admit it,they don't crack like the old ones do.

I have a couple B model frames I am going to cut up. I can save you one. I might even have one one the shelf.

I can't save them all. I am going to cut up a B42s, a B85f chassis and a B61s frame. I would like to keep them, but the township has tagged them and i don't have anywhere to go with them. There isn't much good left on them.

Rob is absolutely right! We make custom cross members as well as frames. If you'd like to get me even a rough sketch of what you're needing, I can work up some pricing for you!

Made a little progress today...

Split the crossmember and test fitted it...OF COURSE I am going to have to drill MORE holes in the frame...

Hey Mike, Would you at least send in the numbers off the frames before you destroy them forever to the Mack Museum?
