Food for thought.
We are running a CobraAmerica cross member. Not for clearance but rather it has two additional mounting points, attaches to the lower a-arm mounts, as well as the frame.
Paid 135 or so 10 years back.
I believe it also increased pan clearance.
Does not accommodate most rack and pinnon setups.
We did not have any fitment issues with the t-pan at the crossmember.
Though our MM's are at stock height.
