It's pretty big. Is as wide as the steering skid plate.

I'll measure it tomorrow.

possibly one of those axle/diff things, hence the hole.

Was thinking the same thing - front axle would be my guess looking at the tabs.

Although not sure why someone would run one - you loose an inch or 2 across half the axle.

I had the South Down plow on one of my RRC and it was different.

I was thinking a transmission skid or t-case skid.

I guess, I have to get under the truck and try it.

Maybe it's a steering guard, those two side brackets are about right to bolt to the steering box holes in frame.

BTW, that Southdown "plow" is a real axle saver if you play in the rocks a lot....hammered so many rocks with mine I turned it banana shaped several times, but the axle never got hurt. It's on it third truck now, and besides multiple straightening sessions with a hydraulic press and a 1/4" thick strengthening strip, it's still going strong.

------ Follow up post added February 22nd, 2013 08:58 AM ------

Could it be a rear axle guard? those side brackets could bolt to the sway bar mounts.....

The bigger question is how did you you change the spelling in the thread title?

I bought it as a steering guard and paid little attention to the pics.

I didn't change anything... Misspelled?

It's the Puerto Rican spell check plugin

Let me guess. Someone posted "free steering guard" or "steering guard: $40" and you said LICKED! Buy first, ask questions later...

I got confirmation that it's a skid plate.

That's what I was looking for and bought... it just looks weird.

Is the hole there so you can inspect the tie rod end?
