Byron, The use is only for street rides. The truck has 31” BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/A tires.Why are you adding power steering and what is the intended use for your ride? The reason for the questions is some systems work better in some areas and others work better in others. In other words, is this a streets only ride, stock size tires or larger (and if so how large) tires, off road use or rock crawling?

Thanks, Byron.You may want to consider electronic power steering for the following reasons:
- Non-intrusive installation. Replace the steering column with the EZ unit. You retain everything from the manual steering box onward. Works with stock alternator and battery
- Complete, self-contained kit. No fabrication, no welding, no chasing down parts in junk yards
- Built in safety features
- ECU controlled, load sensitive feedback. Quick response, never any hesitation
- Silent operation
- Adjust the level of assist with a potentiometer
- Proven reliability. No pump, no belt, no hoses, no leaks
- Reduced impact on gas mileage and horsepower usage compared to conventional power steering
- In the unlikely event you lose power, you'll revert back to your original manual steering. Because your original steering box is retained, your car will drive as it does today with manual steering.
- In contrast, when hydraulic power steering fails, the car can become difficult to steer
I say this as someone who has done my own Saginaw power steering conversion.
Has anyone done a PS conversion to 45 series, using PS box out of 100 series?
