    That looks great! I wish!


    If you have a stock rear axle I hope you have at least an 8.8 explorer axle waiting and ready to go in.

    looks familiar, good job!

    You WILL have problems with that power steering pump set up. Mine was exactly the same. I just switched over to a serp belt and it is greatly improved.

    the v belt would not take the load of the pump trying to turn the larger tires, so it would always squeal and constantly wear down.

    Also i spoke with dvsjeep and he said when i want to upgrade to a psc pump that it wouldn't make a difference with my current v belt set up.

    The pump is still working too hard so I will install hydro assist sometime in the next little while, but is way better with the new serp belt.

    Hope that helps.

    Power steering and V-belts:

    Almost all v-belt engines will have the belt slip and squeal when at full lock ( Maximum Pressure). When you are running larger tires the load on your steering system is much greater and it requires more pressure more of the time, this causes the belt to slip more often. A slipping belt gets glazed and then slips more easily each time it happens. Most people try to fix this by tightening the belt more. This just puts extra side load on the power steering pump shaft wearing out the pump or breaking the shaft. Power steering pumps do not have bearings in them, only bushings and they are not designed for excessive side loading.
    A serpentine belt system has much more contact surface with the power steering pump pulley and will not slip as easily. They are normally self tentioning so you don't overload the pump shaft.
    A stock power steering pump can put out 2.5 gpm @1000 psi thats about 1.5 HP. A Hi-flow pump that would typically be used on a Steering assist or full hydro set up will put out 4.5 gpm @ 1600 psi, thats over 4 hp. With numbers like that you can start to see why your V-belt setup is not really up to the task.
    If you have to use the V-belt, get as much wrap on the pulley as possible to minimize slippage.

    Looks good, you will love the power upgrade...
    Just curious about the power steering problems, I have a stock Chevy v-belt setup with no problems of slippage turning a Dana 44 on 33's...
    What size tire/axle setup are you running?
    I've been running this setup for 5 years...

    I have run dual 2" and single 2.5" and the single does help the seat of the pants torque down low. The Single is also easier to route in a CJ but the YJ frame is wider and gives you more room for duals. If you are going to do a spring over you will need a traction bar and the single is not in the way then.
