    Second Battery Location

    I've been tossing around the idea of adding a second battery but I struggled with where to put it. Well has anyone here tried mounting it in the spare tire carrier?

    Powee steering rebuild

    Can anyone point me to a decent guide on how to change out the seals on my pump? It works great but leaks. I've changed out the hoses so that eliminates that. Got the seal kit but the included instructions are useless as usual.
