o.k., got alot done today, (for a change :roll: )
I had a custom pressure side power steering line built at Service center radiator in Auburn ,and fabb'ed up a return line with a inline tube cooler, got all that installed,along with a new power steering pump and belt, fired it up,, and no leaks, !!
I ended up building my own pitman arm ,the stock Trooper arm is only aprox 4 3/4" long, I needed something in the 6" long range to match the Parts Mike steering arm on the axle,, soo, I had my friend Jeff(Jeffco) bend my a piece of 1/2 thick steel, and than cut and key'ed the trooper arm ends and welded them in the new arm, after some trimming it worked fine,! 8)
I also got the tie rod/drag links installed, along with the front steel braided brake lines,, I built some upper/lower shock mounts,, and will make a visit over to Seans house to bend up a couple of shock hoops later this week.....

Nice!....

That looks just like my Waggy drop pitman arm.
Yours looks beefy though.

FYI- I did some research & ended up purchasing do it yourself fittings & extra hose before the snow run.
3 trips & so far so good. I carry the extra hose (just in case).

It's alive,!! 8)
I drove the LUV around the ppty today,, still needs some items, like the rear e-locker hooked up, found a small anti freeze leak at the t-stat housing, needs the exhaust redone had to cut a 12" piece out just past the engine for the rear of the front shackle relocation (sound like a Kabota tractor,!! :P ) and a new left side motor mount,,,, but it steers awesome now with power steering,, and stops very well with the bigger brakes,!!.....
