i bought one from Metco when they used to sell items for foxbody mustangs, but they discontinued that line now. its a nice piece, but for what was paid for back in 2006, i think you could have one fab'd up and be easier to install than mine.

If you need a loop I assume you have frame connectors. I welded tabs to the frame connectors and made a bolt in loop.

Ditto, the subframe connectors are really needed, and adding a loop is simple with that. I'd bet many aftermarket loops would work with the connectors, but some labor like fabricating one may be needed. It is probably best to have one made for the car.

no connectors yet, ok so basically get the loop and then when the connectors are fabbed up they need to work together.

A lot of the universal loops just bolt to the floorboards. If you do that you need a good size reinforcing plate on top of the floor. Some people just use big washers. Kinda defeats the purpose.
