Man, I just banged a chunk of 4x4 in there and knocked it out when I was done.

I considered the hi-lift but it was behind a pile of "inventory"...yeah, that's what it is, inventory

I already know the style I need in this circumstance. Just trying to understand what the discussion is about.
So am I.
Now we know you have a 3.5 V8, noted above.
In Post 1, you made no mention of the engine option your vehicle has, see below.

I just want to make sure that the distance between the frame rails is actually the same on a Defender and a Classic before I go spreading anything. I'm having a hard time finding drawings with the exact dimensions I'm looking for.

Anyone know offhand if they are the cross-members should be swappable between a 110 and an RRC?

I was just clarifying that the distance between frame rails should be the same because mine was clearly off. I should have mentioned the engine but I was fairly certain it didn't affect the frame rail spacing.

Crossmember is in my truck, thanks all for the information.

Understood.
Was just trying to clarify and help prevent you from trying to put a RR Classic V8 X-member into a TDI vehicle for example.
Glad your missing x-member problem is solved.
