    Last night the 89 k3500 service truck steering lock mechanism jammed and wouldnt let me shut off the truck (without taking a pair of pliers and twisting the jeep out of it) this morning I began to disassmeble the steering column but I cant get the halves seperated...I did get the ignition switch out but it looks like the anti theft bar (the device you push to release your key) is jammed and wont allow everything to come apart..... any help.. anyone??? chiltons is lame here

    and when I do get this thing apart is it possible to do away with the steering lock all together by removing it... hate the damn things anyway....
