The idea is to have A steering column lock and shifter locking for added security. The turn signal/flasher/high beam switch assy is removable with just two screws. There is a plate that holds the upper column bearing in place and it looks very ugly. I will trim off any non essential portions of the plate so it won't look so ugly. Here is a shot showing the column with the Mil Turn Signal bracket held in place. I'll have to weld it on once I find the correct location in relation to the steering wheel. This column has a different upper portion than the Mil columns, because of the casting that holds the ignition lock in position so I have to install the steering wheel and the little add on plastic piece that actuates the turn signal cancel portion on the mil turn signal switch before I weld on that bracket.
Interestingly enough, the "dog bone" and additional mounting support look strangly like the upgrade Mil column and the MWO add on piece so my guess is that the Mil upgrade was simply to use the CIVI parts in that area of the column.
