measurements of the M3 frame
« on: January 28, 2011, 09:40:15 AM »
I'm looking for the over all measurements of the M3 frame. from the front bumper to the rear cross member. I have to shorten my frame and I want to get that right. I'm taking out about 4' of extension.

Thanks Don G.

hello don
i measured the m16 frames i have, they are the same as m3. overall length of the frame is 18' 1 3/4" long. this is just the frame length and does not include the bumper. the pic bellow may also help you. from the bracket to the first rivet on the cross member support bracket is 19 7/16" this is the same on both sides.
