Alright so I've been reading on here and different places about this sub frame. A friend of mine destroyed his this winter and is looking at replacements and when I talked to him about aftermarket frames he asked that I look it up for him (he's not very computer-friendly).

So I read pretty much every post mentioning it on here and everyone is like yeah it looks good, I hear it's good, I heard good things.. but it seems nobody has one and can actually give first hand impressions. Does anyone actually use it?

From what I understand it's much sturdier than stock, which is what my friend is looking for. Then again, I hear it's heavier but I have seen no reference to how much heavier it is... Are we talking 1-2 pounds, or 15-20 pounds? Looking at it I'm guessing it's a small difference, but still, I'd like to know.

What else is there to know about these sub frames? Is e-bay the only place to get them? There is no "buy now" option and my friend is ready to make a move.

Any info would be appreciated.

They are alot stronger QC someone on here has one i saw him talk about it. Your friend rather have the sub frame bend or the sub and frame its attached too bend. Hes got to think about that... Just read also pit vipers arent that great quality wise. Lots of bad spot welds and unfilled cracks...I would think twice...

I trashed my sub frame and replaced it with a stock one for about $100. Id rather have the sub frame bend than the main frame.
Well I looked around and all I can find is 275$+ for these damn subframes. I can get a new one for about that at the dealer. If anyone is selling one for 100$ I'm sure my buddy would think twice.

Well either way, my friend pulled the trigger on the Pit Viper. I'll let you guys know how it goes when we've crash tested it :)
