the crossmember needs to be moved to use the extra clearance you are creating with the mini notch (else your going to get another inch and start banging crossmember instead of frame)

The gas tank mounts there so it needs to be re-done.

I gotcha. I was just going to try to modify the original crossmember to work but I guess since my truck is already down for the rest of the week, I might as well order some steel and do it right.

It was in a scrap pile, and looked like it would be strong enough. I didn't measure it.

I'd shoot for 3/16" thick at minimum, I think mine was 1/4"

I suspect the pipe was 5 or 6" diameter.
