Remove That Fctory Radiator Crossmember
If you are drag racing your new 2005-2014 Mustang and don't need a front sway bar, this BMR crossmember can save you over 10 lbs from the front end of your S197. Not only is this BMR crossmember lighter, it is also stronger thanks to the 1-5/8" tubing. With the swaybar removed, the crossmember only needs to support the weight of the radiator. This lightweight crossmember only weighs 5.5 lbs as compared to the OE 16.5 lbs. Get rid of that heavy factory crossmember and shed some weight today!

Bought the tubular radiator support to replace the stock piece on Boss #1494. I modified it slightly by welding tabs to connect to the stock Z brace. I used 1/8 thick by 2 inch wide channel stock to create the tabs. After some primer and a coat of black hammer tone paint, it looked great. I was able to bolt up the stock Z brace and re-install the plastic parts under the car without using a pile of zip ties. I wonder if BMR would consider offering the part with the tabs (but without the sway bar brackets). My modified BMR support took 11.8 pounds off the front of the car.

Everytime I have delt with LateModel, it seems to get better and better. I have had all positive experiences which is much more than i can say about Summit, or American Muscle. I like the mom and pop shop feel i get when i deal with LateModel. We had a family buisness turning wrenches and a huge part of our success was customer service. Specifically treating every single female as how we would want our sister of mother treated when going to a buisness. We were always more than fair, accommodating and made sure to make all of our customers leave with a smile. And it worked. 30 years later my brother is still in buisness. Yesterday, I got that same type of treatment by Ian. Thank you Ian, you really went above and beyond like this was your personal buisness. Late Model, you just def locked in another lifelong customer thanks to Ian. Semper Fi
