    Actually, I'm pretty sure it's a body stiffener. I doubt GM ever cared about a factory driveshaft safety loop.

    Too bad you are all the way in Iowa..... I've got one that you could have that already has the cutout for the dual exhaust.

    Check out this other one I found too. Read somewhere that the Iceman Fab crossmembers were heavy.... Not sure how that could be but this one says it weighs under 5 lbs.

    Iceman used to produce one that was pretty much identical to the G-force crossmembers. However had to change the design when G-force sued or threatened to sue him.

    I have on of Iceman's original T-56 crossmembers before he changed the design:
