Don't know, you are going to have to be VERY precise on drilling those holes for the rear suspension hangers or your rear alignment will be off. You also do not have a center section from the looks of it.

Rick, not messing with that section (no need). Only the outer support frame.
I can't believe I am the first to do this repair on here ?????

Acudanut sent me these pictures to post. By the tags that came with them it appears these were official pieces made by AM General.

Yes Sir they were official pieces made by AM General. Thanks for posting Matt.
The word scrap I believe , was made when they wanted the Government to buy more Mutts. However they stopped making them in the mid 70's. (in the USA)

They were still made here until the mid 80's, Maybe later. I know of several that had body tags and data plates from 84.
This is one of them, They were pretty serious about demill by then but several of them got out.

Never seen a 80's Mutt built here in the USA. Butt, I don't know it all either.
Rick "I just want to clarify if those repair parts are actually for that cross member since technically they were never made"
Hope you are a now a believer now that you have seen rear cross members made by AM GENERAL.

I see the outer end pieces that appear to be the correct pieces yes. I have been way to busy to check the numbers but Vin says he has used them also. I was only going by what was said on the official paperwork.

Very clean install.

Q: Were these underbody repair pieces meant to cover original damaged parts, or replace after original parts were cut out? That same cross-body portion needs to be replaced on my truck.

I have a 151A2, built the same time as Fil's, a 1980 or 1981, for the USMC.
If the mutts weren't built here in the USA, where would they be built?

I thought I read somewhere that Israel started making them until the 90's.
