    Mine does too. I mixed it up with the TB brace. But the TB brace also has a carrier support for the output shaft on the trans right? How did you move that back as well when the reallifts went in and pushed that subframe back?

    This is the one I'm talking about. If this whole crossmember moves back with the TB relocators what did you do about this support?

    Looks possible to just flip the bracket around but not sure if that will come back a corresponding amount that the crossmember comes back.

    Oh yeah mine is different. I have the 6.5 diesel the manual transmission so the layout is different.

    Ah yes forgot you were manual. At any rate worst case I have to build a new bracket when it all comes backward. Thanks for the info man!

    So I’ve got the real lift pieces as well. I’m not thrilled with the company as they’ve basically said well it fits everyone’s else’s so... sorry. I was taking mine to Moab in June. Ended up taking the TahoeXl “Daisy” and renting Jeeps. I missed meeting Ken Block on Hell’s Revenge by a week
    Good news is we’re going back in October. Still need to modify my crossmember and install lockers. Any tips before I cut it up would be appreciated. I was thinking about using pipe
    Btw customer service at RL is lacking to put it mildly.
