A must for serious off roaders! This brace reduces stress and breakage of the steering box mounting brackets and the frame by providing an additional support between the passenger side frame rail and the steering box. Brace is black powder coated. Fits power steering boxes only.
So far, so good. The hardest part of the installation was cleaning up the threaded bolt holes on the passenger frame - thirty-five+ years of exposure to the elements. Other than that, just bolt it on. The CJ-5 has a high center of gravity and a narrow wheelbase which can obviously be dangerous. This product did away with a lot of the wiggle, making it more easy to control at highway speeds. Also, the price was about half of what I found from other suppliers. I hope my current satisfaction holds out. Thank you 4WD.
