    It can take it just fine. The power steering is one of the most desirable upgrades for the M880/M890 series of vehicles, next would be A/C. Mine came upgraded.

    If you really don't want it, Rich M882 would be willing to swap! haha.

    Oh no I plan on taking this truck through some rough trails when all is done, so I am happy with the power steering. Rich will have to hunt his own up

    Try removing one of those fancy factory "POWER WAGON" decals from a civilian tailgate! Heat gun wouldn't touch it, Goof Off wouldn't touch it, ended up taking it off with a MAP gas torch, putty knife and a wire wheel.

    Do you currently have the correct rear bumper? I cannot tell from the pictures you've uploaded.

    I made a CUCV pintle work on my M880, minor modification. It's posted on here somewhere (years ago)
