LOL, I forgot it's a serpenine belt and steering box on your dak. What's the
ratio and how often are you turning while not moving? I would think the
slower ratio steering box would be fairly easy to use (maybe don't parallel
park) without assist, your dak is the smallest configuration being short box
reg cab. How much does your truck weigh? The bimmer guys (2800 pound cars)
run 2.7LTL manual racks in daily drivers without problems, but I'm not sure
how a steering box works in relation to a rack as I've never had a vehicle
with one.
