Boxed-in and modified tko600 cross member. Its solid mount as you can see, but I decided on poly bushings to the frame side. I was thinking if I have minimal chassis flex, it won't snap my trans tail section lugs.

Posting these since I replied to another members post on building a rear end for maximum output.
As stated, shorted 8.8, welded tubes with weld on gusset and 9" new style ends.

And, is that a custom color, or one someone carries? Looks fantastic in pics.
I used my Akso Nobel, Sikkens paint system to color match my 2010 F150 super crew. I think Ford calls it "ingot silver" or something...?
Doing all the fabrication, bodywork, paint prep and painting cost me appx $2500.00.
I would have estimated a customer $15,000.00 .
I assume a high end custom car shop would charge upwards of $40,000.00
