Do yourself a favour, go outside and poke your head under the front of your Land Rover Discovery 1.  You’ll see it there, exposed and vulnerable, that’s your pitman arm which attaches to the steering box.  Hit it when you're out 4 wheeling and you’re stuck.  If you want real adventure, you need APT's Australian made Land Rover Discovery 1 Steering Guard.

Australian 4 wheeling means the Steering Guard's plate needs to be tough.  Heavy duty 5083 6mm aluminium makes for a tough plate with the right strength to weight ratio.  Being profiled, the plate slides over rocks and stumps in either forward or reverse while keeping your steering linkages safe.  Holes in the plate are there to allow airflow through to help cool the truck.  If you ever managed to damage this plate (nil returns to date) we can provide you another for you to bolt on and drive away.  Note: 6mm aluminium has the right amount of toughness but still has a level of inherent flex.  If the Discovery 1 hits a rock with a bit of grunt, you want the plate to absorb some of the shock and not transfer all of the impact onto the chassis.  That is why we use 6mm. 

Super duty 8mm 350 MPa steel has been used to create bullet proof mounts.  Integrated recovery eyes allow for the safe recovery of your - or your mate’s - truck.  Profiled to fit with most makes of bars, the mounts are laser cut and cnc folded for a guaranteed precise finish.  Corrosion is not an issue as they are finished in zinc powder prime and satin black powder coating.

Even the fixings are heavy duty.  Zinc plated grade 8.8 & 12.9 high tensile bolts, washers and nyloc nuts.

So whether you are from the eastern seaboard, the west coast or somewhere in-between, go out and enjoy your 4 wheeling in your Disco knowing you have the essential protection on your Rover.  Add this Land Rover Discovery 1 APT Steering Guard to your cart.
