Re: Our Marshal DI 4x4 NGCS
I suppose it was when I inadvertently drove over a huge stone in Solang Valley (also cracking the oil chamber) that I did this to my already well-battered and IMO too-low-hanging crossmember.
...Creating the perfect excuse for this long-intended upgrade...
...Which took me from this:
To this (photo angle's a bit different but note the distance from the main frame rail or silencer pipe to the bottom of the crossmember):
... Gaining at least an inch or two of mid-chassis GC in a pretty sturdy configuration. Probably could gain even more advantage by utilizing a newer-style rubber mount, which is lower-profile.
Bolted in easily...
...and no issues in the nine days of stress-testing on some of the worst roads out there (Spiti/Kinnaur, as recounted last week in this thread).
The cost: an approx 2-3ft length of 4" c-channel, few bolts/nuts, and a couple cutoff wheels for the angle grinder... and a couple hours of work running into evening darkness...(as so often seems to happen)
