    this is an old picture, but you can see how the previous owner installed power steering. he actually welded a U-bolt to the outside of the frame, so when i turn a hard right it rubs the tire. so i'm planning on going with bigger tires, and will need to move the power steering. what do you suggest i do?

    do it properly and put the box inside the frame rail which would mean, remove winch, notch front crossmember, new steering shaft, new drag link and probably a new steering box. check out the tech links on this site for more info. :doh:
