Is your Cherokee's unibody broken and now the steering box is about to fall off? This frame plate was designed to help do a proper repair on your XJ.
Laser-cut chassis plates are supplied for the inner and outer chassis rail, along with special sleeves that tie both plates together and provide additional support for the steering gear. The chassis plates and sleeves must be welded to the vehicle's chassis, as a bolt-on design could not possibly provide the same level of integrity and fitment. Therefore, the installation does require welding.
Rusty’s XJ Steering Box Brace is a must after this repair if the vehicle doesn't already have one.
