Poison Spyder Extreme Duty Jeep Wrangler JK Trans-Mount Crossmember
Replace your JK’s weak stock transmission crossmember with Poison Spyder’s Extreme Duty Crossmember! This ultra-beefy crossmember is constructed of two pieces of CNC laser cut, precision brake-formed 3/16″ plate steel. Check out the damaged stock crossmember in the photos below. When getting high-centered on the rocks, with the entire 5,000+ pounds of a trail-ready JK resting entirely on the crossmember, it can tend to bend upward in the middle, or as we say, “Taco”. The double-wall sides of the Poison Spyder Extreme Duty Crossmember put the extra strength where its needed most to prevent the Taco-effect in the side walls of the crossmember. This specific part number is designed to fit 2012 & later JK’s.

Incredibly, the Chrysler engineers decided to put the much thinner 14-gauge piece along the bottom, making it crumple at the mere sight of rocks. The steel used in the Poison Spyder crossmember is 33% thicker on the top plate, and 2½ times thicker on the bottom plate. And the 3/16″ steel plate of the Poison Spyder Extreme Duty Crossmember has brake-formed corners all the way around there are no welds on the box corners.
