Product Description

X-Brace for 2001-2004 Dodge Dakota 4x2 Club Cab/Quad Cab (CC/QC) with automatic or manual transmission that didn’t come with a factory (center bearing) crossmember. Powder coated black.

The X-Brace is the largest single handling improvement, other than tires, that can be made to your vehicle. The x-brace works by triangulating the frame to reduce flex and twisting, thereby increasing the strength of the chassis. Even though a truck has a full frame, the cab and bed are separate pieces (unlike a unibody car) and don't work together to stiffen the chassis. Since the x-brace creates a stronger chassis, there is a reduction or elimination of chassis and body creaking, groans, rattles and squeaks. The x-brace enables the suspension to function more as it was designed for improved stability and performance in a straight line, handling on a road course, and improved braking.

  • The truck holds the road better; it is surer footed.
  • It goes through the turns on a flatter plane than before.
  • The frame's not twisting as much while going over bumps, evident by the bed not moving around so much in relation to the cab.
  • The truck isn't squirrelly while chattering over multiple potholes like it was before; it stays straight and the rear end doesn't kick out sideways.
  • It accelerates better and straighter off the line; the power goes to the road instead of being absorbed twisting the frame.
  • Braking is improved since the chassis isn’t flexing.
  • The system compliments other suspension improvements such as the Hotchkis TVS, sway bars, tires, brakes, etc.

This kit includes a necessary crossmember and increases strength. Comes in black powder coating.  Not for use with 4x4.  May be adaptable to 2-piece drive shaft (call for details).  Complete with all necessary hardware and fasteners.

Note: If you are considering a front driveshaft loop for installation with the x-brace, it is best to install it during the initial x-brace installation process.  That will aid in obtaining precise positioning and alignment prior to drilling any holes. X-brace loop part number XFDL2.

Kit Attributes:

  • This kit utilizes round tubing.
  • The round tubing ends are capped with mounting platforms to prevent tubing crush and debris build-up.
  • The round tubing is mandrel bent without kinks for strength. It works well in torsion and has smooth finish for aesthetics.
  • A top and bottom plate are used for increased strength at the center of the “x”.
  • The crossmember is square tubing.  The ends are capped to prevent debris build-up.
  • The powder coating is durable and ascetically pleasing finish.
