Our steering guard for Land Rover Defender vehicles has been developed in response to customer’s who have wanted a very strong steering guard that will put up with the abuse of harsh off road routes.
The brackets for our steering guard are made from 8mm thick mild steel, they are then fully welded and hot dip galvanised for a long life and ultimate corrosion protection.
The skid plate is available in 8mm galvanised steel for ultimate protection, or 8mm Aluminium either raw or powdercoated black (please allow a few extra days for this as we often paint to order)
The skid plate has been designed to be exactly that, we found that many steering guards out there have lots of cutouts which can get snagged on roots, logs and just generally cause a drag in mud….so we wanted ours to be smooth and strong.
Our steering guard also has optional recovery points, these can be fitted to both or one side or not at all. Our removable recovery points are very substantial 8mm thick hot dip galvanised brackets which unlike other guards which have removable eyes bolted to the side, ours fix to the chassis, to and also bolt through the main chassis brackets and the skid plate to avoid any twisting and giving you the most solid recovery point possible.
Another point to make of our recovery points is that the actual eyes do not sit below the extended profile of the lower section of the skid plate in an effort to keep them as out the way as possible whilst still being functional.
All fixings is provided that you will need to install, chassis bracket fixings are all zinc plated high tensile, and the skid plate is held on with high quality stainless steel fixings.
