Theres a BIG difference between the XLT and 4wd XLT.... just make sure you let me know that if you order one.

I honestly don't know the factory spec, but I do know that all of the trucks I have worked on have been different. I'll try to head to the dealer today and sneak some measurements.

alright bud keep me posted.

fitment is going to be way different in the 4x the front axle is right in the way

id rather see a gusseted u channel or almost a c-channel of tube to clear the front axle instead of a kink. idk

I just put a superlift on and it would be tough getting one of these on there now. Also the drop brackets for the lower a arms run across connecting the brackets similar to what your doing. Not knocking it at all. Its a great idea. If i had a 2wd i would buy one right now. Just giving some info.

the drop brackets take the place of this cross member.... the purpose of it is to connect the two rear lower control arm mounts and prevent them from bending inward. instead of this piece of tube in the pics, your drop bracket is there. this is for those of us who chose not to use drop brackets, and lift our trucks by other means

I know why its there. I was just simply putting it out there about the superlift since its really the only lift left out for a lot of the 4x4s.

Pretty sweet to see one made for the XLT! Dixon bros make them for the EDGE but of course these do not take into account any movement that could have happened.

I would need the center of the bolt on driver side to center of the bolt on passenger side on the rear A arm mounts. I haven't done a 4x4 yet so I'd like to get one over here first to do a test fit. I'm 99% sure I can do it with just a picture though, so let me know how soon you want one.

when do you plan on testing on 4x4 i do some heavy offroad and have been stuck and pulled out many times so one of these sounds like a great idea!
