    I have 40 inch TSL's and need to upgrade my power steering. The stock steering setup doesn't work anymore oil started spewing out of the threads of the two hoses that go in to the steering cylinder (where the steering shaft enters not the pump)as well as the tires wandering all over the place. I was wondering whats the best way to do that without spending $500. Will the stock setup work I drive it mostly on somewhat hard trails, mud every now and then, rocks and pavement. Any and all opinions welcome.

    Get a reman box, drill it, tap it, buy a ram and two hoses, and be done with it.

    Do a search here. Many have done it. I didn't tap my own box but I did install a home brew ram, made my mounts etc., and of course welded them on.

    Search for "Hydro assist" "homebrew hydro" and "Where to tap"
