Don't think you can get the crossmember for free...doubtful on the hitch.

Yes, a running change, but I doubt you can pay and get the upgraded frame cross member. Probably not feasible. Not sure on the hitch though...it may depend on the upgraded frame.

I was told by an engineer that a tweak for the tranny at getting the power to the ground better would be a quicker shift between 2-3rd, and a 10% increase in shift firmness..I hope we are both right..lol
