last summet I read an article on a frame brace for the Jeep Cherokee. The brace went from one corner to the other and was bolted in place the welded. It was supposed to reduce body flea. I can not remember the name of the companey that made it. Anyone else read about it ? (and know how to contact them) Thanks....

Here are a couple that I found:

Aftermarket bumpers or hitch receivers would help strenghten the unibody as they will tie the rails together, forming a box. Add a couple of beefy peices of angle iron welded to the rails (as stated above) and you should be pretty set...for a lot cheaper too. Wink
