Power steering upgrade?

Are there any power steering upgrades for the 6.7 I just upgraded my truck to 35" tires about 6k miles ago and my power steering is gone. I'm not sure if it might just be the pressure line but good chance it's the box because it would ocasionally get hard on me even with just stock tires but it always behaved while at dealership. Now warranty gone and so is my pump.

How many miles? I doubt you will find any power steering upgrades, nor should you need any for 35s.

If you want to dump some money (for no good reason) put a hydro steer set up on it!

They don't want to warranty because I just passed the 36,000 miles. I was thinking of an upgraded pump because if this pump gave out this quick why not look into an alternative.

IIRC and I admit my memory is a little faulty at times. There were some isolated instances where the steering pumps were leaking... So either yours leaked out all the fluid slowly over time and you didn't realize it or you may have just gotten one that was able to make it past the 36K warranty.

If you need to fix this on the cheap. I did a quick search and for $136 there are some used ones out there. (including shipping to the continental US) Might be worth trying?

As far as an upgraded pump for our trucks, I haven't found one yet and I suspect that Viper is correct in that they are not available yet.

Good luck and let us know.
