    <font color=blue>Me and my dad took our trucks up to the woods today and his 81 K10 started leaking p/s fluid out the cap. What would cause this? </font color=blue>

    Maybe too much steering fluid?

    <font color=blue>It may be overheating. He has 14.5" wide tires (with crossover steering) and I think this is the first time hes had it on the highway with the 2WD box. It seems to have stopped for now.</font color=blue>

    Yeah, I would say it is overheating. Sometimes it can get so hot to the point of boiling.
