Steering box protection?

Is there any good items out there to protect that protrusion out the left front of our rigs? I've seen them for the TJs and newer, but I'm looking for an affordable choice for a CJ.

If there is more than the one offered by 4wdh, which you need that brand of bumper to use it, anyone have a good recommendation?

Nobody has ever put any steering box armour on a CJ?

Don't need it. The box is mounted so far back and up in the frame, that if it gets hit, you have more to worry about than the steering gear box.

You could always fabricate your own, duplicate it, sell it on the internet, and become a millionaire...
