Steering protector

Ok....when I got the 110, it came with a ton of parts. I have what I think is a steering protector and want to get it on the truck. I have searched but not a clue how this goes on. Any ideas? Its a "pipe/tube" with arms coming off it. Will try and post a pic when I get home.

That is probably the type that goes over the rear steering rod. It should bolt to the radius arm mounts and the diff housing

From your description it could also be the type that bolts to the frame at the front above the drag link. Its just a tube with a couple of tabs welded on to bolt to the frame. Never really saw the point in this type myself to be honest.

Thats kinda my thought also.....kinda light weight to really protect anything.

Odds are it is a safari gard style that bolts to the axle casing. Very strong in practice (had one on a disco -- it has the two mounts on the side and bolts to the bottom of the diff) but a pain to set up so that the rod does not hit the tube at full lock.

If it is a round tube, it goes in front under the bumper and is tits on a bull in my view.

That would be the critter! On the fence if it will be used, but you have dibs.
