Default Tunnel Brace Replacement

I finally have some extra money now and am looking to do a few things. I took off my tunnel brace a long time ago and am thinking that i need to go ahead and replace it now. What i am wondering is are there any parts that replace the tunnel brace and also serve other functions. Like is there a driveshaft safety loop that also acts as a tunnel brace and bolts onto the safe place. Or is there a new torque are that does the same thing. And if there is what is a good place to get them from.

Lakewood driveshaft safety loop, fits up tightest of
any of them and bolts right on. I think I got mine
from Jeg's but probably can find a sponsor selling
them for similar price. Torque arms all want to be
well forward of that spot, even the shorties. But a
trans crossmember / TA mount relocation piece
is my latest purchase, as it happens.

I'll second that. Lakewood p/n 18022 - its not fancy (zinc plated), but its cheap and it provides as much clearance as you're gonna find. Great for duals too.
