I'm attempting to make a vehicle without the vehicle library in Dark Physics. I'm using 6DOFs as the joints. I got everything except steering to work. I was wondering what the best way to attempt to do steering would be.

depending on how you've connected your wheels an upsidedown T might do the trick, where there a bar connecting to the wheels and then you move this bar with the long part of the T.

like so:-
......|
.[]------[]
...../
[]------[]
.......\ <<<< where this bit swing left or right and moves the bar
...[]-----[]


or you attached a sphere to the wheels and then rotate the spheres,(think this will be easier and quicker to do.)
