Cracking steering braces

My friend Bob came over and told me that his Currie steering box brace broke clean off at passenger side. Lucky for him he noticed it before it did any major damage. If it swung down to the ground while drive'n...??? So we took a look at mine and is starting to crack in the same place! These where the Currie heavy duty ones that cost about $80. I guees it is better that these crack and not the steering box itself. The thing that gets me is that mine is only one years old. I am going to contact Currie and ask them about this. If you have one PLEASE check it out. Let me know if any of yours are craked.

Re: Cracking steering braces

Someone makes a completely new one piece steering box mount. It is supposed to be better than using the multi piece stock mount and a brace that goes over to the other side of the Jeep. I remember seeing this mount in JP, or 4WD&SUV magazine. (cant remember which).

Re: Cracking steering braces

i think sam's off-road carries some 1/2" steel, one-piece steering box mounts too.

Re: Cracking steering braces

Umm. I don't think MOTMAN was looking for a new way to mount his steering box, guys.
What I THINK he was asking was for any of us who also have the Currie brace to check it for cracks in the region he indicated, for our own safety and to see if this is just a random thing or not.
Just my $.02
