Arrow Power Steering

I own a 97 and it has no power steering. As of now it is fine but i am getting a lift and big ol' 31x10.5 tires and i can already tell it is going to be a pain. any ideas on how to maybe install a power steering pump or any other ideas to make it a little easier on my arms would be great. Thanks!

What size engine?

Even with the 31s it would not be a big problem without power steering. It will be a little harder turning while stopped but about the same as you drive.

Best idea I have for a power steering set up would be to go to a junk yard and buy a complete power steering setup from a ranger with the same engine as yours.

someone might have a better idea, who knows.
