(7 reviews) Write a Review

Constructed from laser cut and CNC formed 3/16" steel this crossmember is designed to take a beating. Replaces the stock stamped sheetmetal crossmember in most Cherokee and Comanche models with the NP231 transfer case. This crossmember was also designed to work in conjunction with our long arm brackets for the ultimate in suspension and undercarriage upgrades. 

NOTE: Designed to fit with NP231 Transfer case models. May also fit with NP242, but has not been verified. Does not fit Peugeot 5speed transmission models. 


Install Notes: This crossmember was designed to be a direct replacement for the stock part, and mounts using all the existing hardware. There is one additional optional mounting point towards the rear of the skid. The hole there lines up with an existing hole in the frame, and we provide a riv-nut and bolt that will need to be installed there. We also provide a thick spacer to fill the gap between the skid and the bottom of the frame on Cherokee models. Comanche models do not need this spacer as the frame is flat. If you've never installed a riv-nut before there are a bunch of YouTube videos with different ways of doing it using basic tools.

    Straight up HEAVY

    Posted by A Keen on Dec 30th 2019

    This piece is HEAVY. In the absolute best way that could be taken. This is no doubt one of the best products you could purchase for your XJ/MJ. Easy install, very straight forward, especially when paired with the SFR transmission mount. I would recommend replacing the 4 OEM bolts that hold the skid to the underside of your rig if you have wheeled it before and/or live in a rust prone area. Fastenal has corrosion resistant ones the same strength. Great product I’d recommend to anyone with an XJ/MJ.

    Transmission crossmember and skid

    Very beefy, happy with the design and build, but did not fit my Jeep with the NP242 Tcase without modifications

    Trail Proof Skid

    This thing is amazing! Came fast, super heavy duty and spot on design. I actually had to trim and change the rear mounting a bit due to my 4 link rear, and the design was perfect to let me do it! This is probably the strongest part on my whole rig! Have since landed on it bunches of times and not even a dent. Great buy!

    As always SFR delivers a great product and best of all it actually works with their long arm kit as intended!

    SFR Crossmember

    Won’t have to worry about hitting my transfer case in the rocks with this one. Very heavy duty. Installation was a piece of cake. A must when you do the 3 or 4 link in my opinion.
