Joyner trooper electric power steering for $200..

19 posts in this topic

I made my own electric power steering for my Joyner trooper..I bought a steering column out of a 02 satern vue for $80 at a junk yard..then bought a wiring kit off of eBay for another $80. And made the steering arm...the wiring kit even came with a adjustable nob..

But is this steering not far to long? 5:1 instead of 1,5:1 ?

No it works great..just had to make a linkage for the power steering unit to the stock rack and pinion.. the wiring kit from eBay even can with a knob that I mounted on the dash to adjust how much electric assistants you want.... there is some utube videos about it to.. people have put it on hot rods and tractors.. you can put it on anything really.. you just have to adapt it to whatever you put it on..

What year and model is that it looks sick. I just got 09 trooper t2 1100 turbo on 32" and some custom fabricating. I have almost no room to steer my knees rub the wheel while driving. So power steering and wheel tilt would be ideal. I just don't know what all I will need to install. Any info you have would be awesome. f903989851ef7d3660d4dfb7ec880456.jpg4e3988b4049b3525630749b31d6c371a.jpg11f7057bc6c7c65a6c36eb0bd901c351.jpg

So I bought the tilt steering kit you suggested but when taking the old column out I found that there is a small amount of adjustment that can be made with the stock one that is on it. And I was able to tilt it up enough that my knees no longer touch the steering wheel. That made my day.

Planning to add electric power steering to my 09 T4. Looking at YouTube, I have found that some of the EPS columns have remote mounted ECU and only require 3 wire hookup...power, ground and switched ignition. After 10 seconds, EPS will go into fail safe mode and supply good power assist, without the extra wires connected (or the adjustment knob.)
Thinking of trying a Prius or Corolla column...about $50 at the junkyard or $80 on eBay. Tobie1987 has done exactly what I plan to do. Any advice?

And another...got stuck that day, just me and my son, and he had an injured leg that he was trying to keep out of the water. Glad we had the farm jack and snatch block, that stock winch had to go.
