New Trooper Power Steering unit

Recommended Posts



Call them and see what they about using it on our Troopers. Or maybe they can whip up one for the Trooper.

Good find. I see 2 cords comming from it. One would be for the 12v power but what is the other for. If it is ment to plug into the computer, there may be a problem.

If you look at the slide pics below the steering gearbox, there does appear to be a computer or a controller. When I did a search on the site I could not find the parts in the slide pics so maybe they come with the gearbox. It will take a call to the site to get to the bottom line on the installation & what are all the parts required.

I requested info via email regarding their units and if they had one for the troopers and their response was no.

This was the response from a follow up question to them to see if they could make one for the trooper.

"We are currently working on several side by sides, but the joyner unfortunately isn't one. I do apologize. I myself like them alot. They are a rare breed."

Thanks again for your time,

Casey,

That was my thought also and i asked that.Response was just what you said,same unit just bracketts and steering shaft adapters differ.He is checking on price without those two items if at all possible to purchase that way.

I think Rocmoc would be ready to do something for power steering too if we could get as good package price for say 5 units or more. Maybe we should get a consensous of how many members would be ready to go with power steering if the price was say under $500. Maybe we should have Rocmoc do the negotiation for a low price on a quanity. He is tough when it comes to bargining for a good price. Maybe others might be good at bargining too but I just know Rocmoc better and know he would be good plus I wouldn't be worried about sending him money. Then again, he is awful close to the Mexican boarder, he could skip the country. We could all send our money to one person who would place the order then have the units drop shipped to each of us directly from the supplier. Right now, it sounds like we have Quig, Ricksrb, I would do it. Who else is ready?

Kinarfi, maybe we should move the post here about power steering to a seperate thread so it doesn't trample this thread and it would also help group the those interested in power steering. What do you think?

Okay here is what i have.They will sell us the power steering unit,wiring,and controller for $400.00 each.Remember this does not include the shaft or adapters.I have a total of seven that has shown interest in the purchase and need to know if we have more and if these seven are serious and ready to make the purchase.So far i have,

Lenny,Quig,2scoops,bruhaw,plumber,rocmoc,and myself.Once i work out more details i will let you know.

Plumber,

He is checking to see about the question you had about bringing your trooper in for them to modify their unit for the troopers.They did not think there would be much of a market for the units to go into Joyners before but with our interest that might change.

Thats perfect, I'm not interested in the mounting hardware and column pieces. I just want the power head and controlls. I'm serious and ready to go. Let me know Rick how the money is to be dealt with and I'll sent the money out. I'm going to assume that this does not include the cost of shipping to each person. This deal will not be beat by anyone. I've been working on this for a long time and the best I have found is to buy the electric power steering from a Corsa B or C and buy an after market signal generator which is designed to provide the signals the controller expects from the cars computer. A lot of these are used in Europe for rally cars. The best I have come up with is about $400 for the power steering column, controller and signal generator with shipping from Europe. Shipping alone is about $150.

Wow Rick, I'm going to add you to my book of good negotiators. Good Job.

Lenny

Thanks,

By the way below is what response i got about you bringing your in to them.I am forwarding photos tonight after i take some.

"I was just speaking with my owner. He says that he is not against bringing one in but first he wanted some pics. He recently had an Arctic Cat that he was interested in trying one on but quickly realized that there was absolutely no room with out trimming plastic. Take some images of the front by the rack and where the shaft comes down. We will take a close look at those images first before we try to get one in here."

I want the power steering, just don't have much in the way of tools or knowledge to build bracket & cut into steering column to install. Hope I can figure something out, or get it from them?
