Default steering box relocation?

so I want to get about 4-6" of stretch out of the front of my CJ7, along with a wagoneer pitman arm which is like an inch or so longer than stock.

ideally, I would just sleeve the frame rail, slide the box forward and drill new holes... but there is the crossmember thing between the frame rails in the way. Im assuming its purpose is to keep the frame rails parallel, but I have a bumper welded on, so I can just remove it?



also I have an AGR box... so i dont want to replace it with an astro box unless its completely necessary.

They make relocation brackets for this, but I don't know about moving it that far. Check out Sam's Offroad.

Are you going to street-drive this? If not, full hydro would make things easier.
