    We used a new TAS 65 steering gear box from
    a snow plow. Got it from “Vanderhaggs” in Kansas
    City. Ordered a longer torque arm from a truck
    junk yard. Steering “u joints from burglelsons??
    a CAT hydraulic pump that bolts up to the air
    Compressor. Plasma cut out a “3/8 back up plate.
    We have “53 tires and We would not not.change a
    thing, feel is perfect. With 12K
    M35a3 with 53" tires, love them

    At this time I'm trying to go to upper management and see if anything can be done. Right now they want me to "replant" all "original Washington vegetation" on the whole property ! We have 5 acres and most of that is grass. We spent thousands of dollars to have it done and now those "asswipes" want us to wipe it out and put in weeds !!!!!
    I mean REALLY ?!?!?!?
    Makes me sick that I live in such a "liberal waste land" in what once was a great state. These idiots are so "open minded" their brains have fallen out !!!
    Sorry for any "liberals" out there who might take offense to that statement. (not really)
    So at this time it is looking like it will be in July of 2020 before the "Great Alaskan Adventure" can happen.
    I'll keep you posted.

    With my system you will not need to do anything to the original layout of the truck, except add a hydraulic pump (easy) and some work on the steering gear itself. But hey if you like what you have no problems.

    I am grateful Clark County isn't that bad yet. My wife and I left California as well as friends for the same reason. Anyway I am heading off track here, everything I own seems to pull to the right............ There is a casino in Northern Calif on "Liberal Ave." and we always joke about the impossibility of making a right turn on Liberal Ave. Now back the thread topic; well based your post #15 everything I have collected so far will be used for the power steering upgrade.
