well...I'm on the same school of thought as Easy GO. That piece looks awesome. What I did on mine since my pipes rubbed after the xpipe and straight pipe install, I had a set of 5/8" steel rectangle spacers made and then put a piece of shallow C-Channel welded across the brace. There is no twist...I also upgraded bolts a grade and because I used spacers the same size as the stock brace, you have a continuous attachment point.
IMO...it's under the car...don't over think it. I've got $20 in mine...all this was done to my stocker.
FYI....I drove mine with the brace off for two weeks...couldn't tell much difference except at a real hard drop-pedal take off. Also, you could feel a hint of driveshaft vibration above 5Krpm. Brace in...everything went back to normal or better.

Yeah but even the underbody needs some love too right. Overkill is my middle name... at least when it comes to machining things for myself. Its just nice after months and months of making other people's parts to cut loose and make something for yourself and go for total overkill ya know!!

I have 3 inch exhaust upgrade on my 2010 and it doesn't hit at all.

I'll keep you guys updated who are subscribing. Hoping to have enough free time this weekend to cut my better design. Made the walls a little thicker for more strength.

As it sits right now, the price would be 195.00 each.

If I go to more complex of pockets and other features, $ would go up. This is w/o plating... to keep cost down. 6061 resists corrosion far better than 2024 and 7075. However, if everyone wanted it anodized, I'd raise the $ accordingly and do it.

Knowing ALL women, they'd probably still be unhappy.
