    So. I know what I need to add power steering to my jeep. Questions is what vehicles can I pull those parts from if I go to a junk yard?

    Howell fuel injection, header, HEI distributor, TH350, NP208, SOA lift with YJ springs in the front & GW springs in the Rear. AMC20 with G2 1 piece chromos trussed, Dana 30 with G2 chromos and 760x ujoints and MM Stainless Hubs, Geared 4.56. Tom Woods shafts, Metal cloaks, Caged, 37" Toyo MTs.
    Find a jeep the same years (CJ, YJ, TJ), motor (I4 or I6), and same belt drive system (serpantine belt or V-belt). You will need the power steering pump and brackets and blots that mount it, and if a serpentine belt you will need the one that accomadates power steering (it is longer). If your jeep has the older v-belts you'll need a powersteering belt. You will need the steering gear box and pressure and return hoses as well. The pitman arm is likely larger diameter on the power steering gear box than manual box so you will likely need that too.
