Feelin a bit Ticked off. So I bought a Jegster crossmember for my Monte with a 200r4 trans. I had one guy at Jegs tell me it will fit even though it is made for a 700r4 trans. Does not mention 200r4 period.

I mean how can I get a strait answer???? Is there a difference between the 700r4 and the 200r4 trans?? or do I just send it back and start over.......

yeah, 700 and 200 are different. should have gotten one from iceman. lighter, probably stronger, and iirc cheaper

Last I heard the iceman crossmember was $170 and Jegs is $130. Strange that Jegs would say that - they clearly list a different part number for the 700 and 200 on their website.

Original owner of 1985 SS black hardtop w/gray interior. Frame-on restoration - 406 sleeper w/ heavily ported FIRST TPI. However the 1.875" headers, 3.5" duals, TH400, Ford 9", notched frame, and 10-point cage w/swing-out bars might tip you off it's not a lil' ole 305 TPI. Other mods: 2" drop, 18" wheels, f/r disk brakes, and custom stereo system.

Hi guys,
Thanks for the info. I actually heard this morning on my face book G body forum, that Iceman is the way to go as well. I am sending the jegster back and getting the Iceman crossmember.

What are you using that jegster crossmember in? 87 Monte and it went right in? No modifications?

yes 87 with a th400 zero mods. I did mount it solid to the frame rails with grade 8 fasteners. my body mounts were worn out so the driver side hump barely touched the floor pan.
