Those look like a lot thinner metal then wild rides. I am getting my wild ride battle boxes and custom subframes (large boxed tubing) put on next week. The wild rides battle boxes are made with almost 1/4 inch thick steel. They cost $170.

Anyone with any sort of fabricating skills can make you up a set. It's just 1/8" inch steel.

Pull your carpet up and look at the trans tunnel right behind the console. If it's twisting you'll see it. Mines all f'd up even with sub frames and a 8pt bar

Could this be why I have a crack going up my trans tunnel?
