    Got a bolt on steering box brace in a trade but no instructions. Anyone got these that you could scan for me?

    Looked but no luck.............what do you need to know? It is a pretty basic install, remove the two rearmost bolts from the steering box behind the crossmember (in engine compartment), enlarge hole in crossmember that is currently probably (depending on what year your rig is) housing a hose/tubing clamp, and bolt it in. Front/small brace goes in front of the crossmember and this time you remove the front steering box bolt. Any more questions, ask.............and check my site, I have a page dedicated to the ORD brace install with pics. Here is the direct link.............shows what you need -

    thanks, but it looks pretty straight foward. Between these 2 writeups and the pics, should be able to handle it. [​IMG]. All I had though was a couple brackets and 4 bolts, didn't know where it went. Thanks.

    Those things have instructions???? OOPS!

    I didn't look at the instructions, just the pic of one installed and then went with it. Had a heck-uva time getting around the oil cooler lines, but I still made it work. The second one I did was a LOT easier [​IMG]
