This v-rod bracket bolts to the inside of the truck’s frame rails, between the two rear tandem axles. This bracket mounts two pairs of axle control v-rods that go from the top of the axle carrier “hump” to the truck’s frame rails and provide lateral support.

Part number 18-28530-002 is a bulkhead bracket (BRKT-BULKHEAD TO XTUBE, 48/70RR) made of aluminum. This bulkhead bracket mounts together two cross tubes that combine to support the upper console, above the driver’s head, in a raised roof vehicle.

Part number 01-26318-001 is an engine mount bracket (BRKT RH RR ENG 3126) made of cast iron- ductile iron. This bracket bolts to the flywheel housing of the engine and supports the engine via attaching it to a corresponding mount that is bolted to the frame.
