What did you have to do to get the rack mounted to your truck? What did the rack originally fit? Any Pictures? Thanks JoeDodge

Sounds like you should do a DYI on that...

Sorry about not responding in a while, but the rack came from an 02 ram and i was able to use all my power steering components except for one power steering hose which I had to fabricate from my old and a new 02 hose that goes from the ps cooler to the rack.

It drives a hell of a lot better, a lot less play in the steering wheel. I had to drill holes in the cross member under the engine to be able to put two long bolts through to hold the rack in place, I'll post pics as soon as I can.

I just rebuilt my '98 QC frontend with the exception of the steering linkage. R&P is the way I would like to go. Pics would be great. Same PS pump? What outer tie rod end did you use? What about the steering shaft? thanks JoeDodge
