i busted my steering gearbox. I have a spare, so this time it's not a big deal. Is it the 200K + miles on the gearbox that caused it's failure, or was it the oversized tires with full lockers?
IF i break the new one, i'm thinking about getting rid of the silly steering wheel all together and going to two separate hydraulic valves.
like this one
One on each side of the drivers seat. Also separating the hydraulic systems so each has it's own pump and is unrelated to the other. That should increase the likelyhood at least one end of the truck will be able to steer in case of failure.
maybe i'll mount the steering wheel on the passenger side and not connect it to anything...just for fun.
