Power steering is done. Couple quick remarks. Dont use the blue wire, dont use the bullet connector use a butt splice, man that shaft is close to the brake bracket, watch for metal burrs inside the splines so it goes in all the way. I will post pics tomorrow.

Not much really to say about it. It does what it is suppose to do. Just sitting in the garage, turn the key on and you can move the wheel pretty easy. Id imagine moving its effortless. I havent driven mine yet except off the trailer. I will say this, I didnt install it just like the directions say as far as the position of the little control box. And instead of using the supplied bullet connector for the power I used a butt splice and made it a solid connection which I felt was better.

Well I did it after I got off work so I took two days to do it. I did take my time and make sure everything was done right because of the close proximity to the brake bracket. I didnt want it to hit and bind and prevent me from turning. You are going to have to fiddle with the mounting bracket for the motor mount to get the small amount of clearence that is there from the brake bracket. The control box is actually rotated 90 degrees down, its suppose to be tucked up more behind the dash but it was resting right up against the cvt intake duct and hard to get to the motor mount bolts to tighten them. Also the plugs are a bear to securely get them in the control box because they have watertight seals in them and if it was up more behind the dash it would be tough to get them in there. I didnt use the blue wire (doesnt say anything about the blue wire), I shortened up the wires(red, black, white) because they are so long and everything connects right there anyways.They give you a scotch lock to connect the white wire(switched power) to the red/black wire. They give you a bullet connector for the power wire but mine didnt connect well so I used a butt connector and made it solid. Ground connects right there to the stud the net latch is mounted on.

Its probably for the speed sensitivity so it can cut power down when at higher speed but it doesnt say anything about the blue wire.

Not sure whats changed since I put mine on but the power wire had a bullet connector that connected to the existing wire under the dash. I used a butt connector instead.

Once you get power steering you will never want one without it. Mine works great.
