There'll be pics to follow, so lets not hear too much shit about that. LOL I have an XJ 6" on 33's The frame cracked at the steering box, wich caused the steering box bolts to snap off. Now the only thing holding the box on the Jeep is the pitman arm! LOL.

So, I've been looking around trying to find a steering box brace so this doesn't happen again after I repair it. I'm told by the local shops that this doesn't exsist for my vehicle. I have to call bullshit on that! Can anyone help me??

Thanx Trailjunkie. That'll give me an idea of what direction to take in the repair. By the sounds of his post, it doesn't sound like I can get it in a day or two. Looks like I have some fab work ahead of me.
