    A few things here and there. Still dreaming up stuff
    Is it still stock steering rack or a solid axle?

    The stock gear box really just suck after 35in tires. Really it's time to make some changes and go bigger if you want to go bigger tires than that. I'm having the same issue with my steering with 37s. It doesn't turn for shit. U less I'm going 55 or better.

    ja ok.. mine does turn if I ref the engine to about 1500 rpm os I was thanking that it might work to get smaller power pump pulley. So when the car is in idle then the pump will turn like it is up on ref.... Do you thank that works?

    I"m not sure really. Look up URD. They really know Toyota's. They also might have a pulley in stock.

    Remove rear side bumpers, deck plate mod, relocate rear window switch to dash, removed rear wiper
    Do you have the factory vacuum lines that go to the steering pump? If so , you may have a line off.
