Product Overview


Do you need your squarebody frame to stand up to more hardcore abuse? Deuling Design 73-91 Squarebody Frame Plates paired with steering box repair kits offer a serious strength upgrade. Choose the correct option to match your ORD or Smittybilt style steering box brace plate and have increased strength to the front shackle hanger and body mount area.

Choose between the 'Standard A & B' style or the very popular 'Windowed C & D' style frame plates. Please note the Windowed style plates require additional welding and are recommended for the experienced fabricator. 

The Deuling Design multi piece approach makes it easy for the plates to fit your frame and work around differences in model years.  Slight trimming or modification may be required.

Please take into consideration the welding methods instructed with your steering box frame plate and apply them here. Use clamps to hold panels tight to the frame during welding. Many people choose to fully weld their plates and that is up to the discretion of the customer and not liable by Deuling Design LLC or its affiliates. 
Material: 1/8" A36 Steel (same as the steering box braces)
Applications: 1/2 & 3/4 Ton Trucks/Blazers/Suburbans.  
- *At this time we do not know if they will fit K30 frames.*

    Another great idea!

    These frame plates are a great idea. What a perfect way to add rigidity while staying light weight.
    The front section of the factory frame is difficult to box so adding these plates to the outside edge provide the extra strength, and an additional layer. The added layer is basically an over-sized fish plate so now you can add more brackets anytime.
    The window type also provide a great opportunity for welding practice.
