    Sorry for the long delay Adam, I found out that you would need at least about 25 vertical inches and 6 horizontal inches for the install to work.

    That being said, I just got word from Howe Performance that the packages ordered through the group buy will be shipping within the next 24 hours! I know it was a long wait, but that time has finally come! We also have FIVE more in stock ready to go while Howe works on the next run of them so anyone that was patiently waiting for the kits to be ready to ship can get with me about getting their order placed.

    Mine still in the box unopened. I think it was meant for another! We'll see soon enough.

    Here are some pics of my install. I did all the work myself. It can get pretty tricky routing the hoses down at the rack.

    haha not sure if this was a serious question with all the puns.

    Getting the stock unit out was a little tricky. There are 4 bolts total to get the oe unit off, 3 holding the pump to the block and 1 securing the hose to the pump . All which can be access from under the truck using a 3/8 swivel and some extensions. After that just follow Howes instructions on installing bracket to the block. The pump it self is super easy to install on the bracket with 2 bolts.

    The only part that gets tricky is the fittings down at the rack. There is not much room with the radiator hose down there. You have to have alot of patience. Howes doesn't have alot of photos showing how to route the hoses you are kind of on your own.

    You can defiantly hear the steering pump in the cabin. Its not horrible by any means but you know it a high flowing pump.
