1988-98 GM Silverado/Sierra Parachute Mount 14-230
This Motion Raceworks 1988-98 GM Silverado/Sierra Parachute Mount is a great NHRA & IHRA track legal option to stop your vehicle safely, but look good while doing it. Made in the USA, we fully TIG weld a combo of DOM Chromoly Tubing and CNC Laser Formed Brackets for a strong but lightweight design. From there the mount is inspected and prepped for its standard gloss black powder coat finish to become the highest quality piece on the market!
The Frame Cross Bar is designed to bolt on to your factory frame mounts replacing the factory crash bar/bumper support. With a cross bolt receiver design this allows for easy installation and with removal of one bolt, the Parachute Receiver Mount comes out. Then the hole can be quickly hidden with a license plate for street driving, trailering, or storage when not at the track.
- Frame Cross Bar Mount
- Parachute Receiver Mount
- All Necessary Grade 8 Hardware (some kits reuse factory hardware)
We also highly suggest picking up our Parachute Essentials Kit when ordering. This gives you a billet end cap for your cable to avoid snags that would prevent the parachute from deploying as well as a cable holder and Remove Before Flight Flag

This kit is designed to be used in conjunction with a roll pan. After removing the stock bumper and bumper brackets from your truck frame, this bolts in place of where the bumper came off. The bolts are made for locating, we suggest welding directly to the frame after installation for the most secure and safe install. After the main cross bar is installed, the parachute receiver simply bolts in right behind the license plate location with a single cross bolt for easy install and removal. This keeps your tail gate as functional as possible for those who use their trucks for more than a track only purpose.

NOTE: With hardware fully tightened, we always recommend welding the parachute mount to the vehicle for added strength and security as not to rely on only the hardware.
