Steering box brace for '03-'06 TJs??

Does anyone know of a manufacturer who builds these for the '03-'06 TJs? I'm continuing the buildup, and this will be part of the puzzle to rid myself of shimmy and wobble. Thanks in advance!

Get the brace for 2003 and newer TJs from M.O.R.E. like shown at SB9037TJ03 M O R E Grey Steering Box Brace Jeep Wrangler TJ 2003 2006 | eBay

There's also one made by Rusty's that is so weak and spindly that I wouldn't touch it.

And while steering box braces are definitely a good idea, they shouldn't be thought of as a cure for shimmies or wobbles.

Thanks, Jerry! I'm going through the entire front end, ditching the BFGoodrich tires, and tackling the entire problem so I can drive my Jeep more and garage it less.
