    Power steering pump source?

    I may also have to fabricate a slightly longer pump shaft to accommodate the vehicle's slightly longer length, right?

    Power steering pump source?

    Unfortunately my lower (pressurized) line came loose, spewed out all my PS fluid and ran my pump dry. I tried refilling, but it was too late.

    Roll Bar Removal... with a grinder?

    Probably not going to happen this summer, but when I replace panels over the winter in the bed area, I need to remove the rollbar. For laughs I picked up a couple T40 bits, and fed them to my impact gun. There are 16 torx bolts holding that rollbar in place. 0 moved. I soaked the best looking...
