    I'm a novice at X-Runners, so that is where the "x" comes from and this is the only way to get a five lugger with the 4.0?
    I don't see the traction bars, can you ciccle or point a arrow at them.
    BTW, I sort of like it, looks good.

    yes this is where the x comes from. braces the frame and makes it much stiffer for cornering.

    the tractin bar runs parallel to my driveshaft in the following picture. kinda hard to see in the light but its there lol
