Poison spyder rear crossmember with hitch.

I picked one of these up last weekend. Haven't put it in yet. It looks great and strong. Anyone put one in yet. Got any pointers to make sure I don't mess it up. Or any reviews from people who have it?

It looks pretty self explanatory from the instructions online. I just cut my rear cross member off, flipped it upside down, and notched it for the body mounts and inset it back a bit for a better angle. Pretty much the same thing minus welding on a new cross member. Only pointer i really have is a sawzaw makes a nice straight cut.

You didn't have any problems like the frame moving or twisting after cutting?

When I cut my crossmember out for the Poison spyder bumper the frame popped about an eighth of an inch. Pulled it in with ratchet straps and welded in a new crossmember, who cares. It's a Jeep, not a precision sports car. I've cut all the way through both cross members and the frame itself, stuff always adjusts around an eighth of an inch and nothing bad has ever come from it.

I cut the crossmember out and just bolted up the BFH bumper in its place about 5 years ago. I have never even though twice about it. The bumper itself is way more beefy than that crossmember, and it fits in the same location.

If you are going to be towing then there's definitely a need for the crossmember, but speaking about the frame itself being supported the bumper does the job just fine by itself. You can even run a few beads around the bumper mounts to secure it more if you feel bolting it up isn't strong enough, although in my case it's worked fine.
