My buddy is building a 1978 chev short box 4x4. The frame was made in 76 but sold as a 78. Behind the rear cab mounts there appears to be an offset x-member cut out. A bracket on the inside of the frame appears to be cut off but would join onto another bracket on the outside of the other frame rail. Was a x-member cut out or were these simply muffler hanging brackets. Does anyone have a picture for me to compare or what existed in this area.
