Cool build. Cool sami. Cool shop - what size is it?

I got my AN fittings from speedway. But like mentioned before, call summit or Jegs.
Thank you sir!

My building is 40x80, but my work shop is 40x50. I've got a dividing wall between the shop and a 30x40 storage area.

Went to the Badlands Park in Indiana over Memorial weekend. It's the first big trip I've taken the Sami on and it worked great. Some of the climbs were sketchy with the short wheelbase but it was perfect for all the rest of the trails.

I've always been a welded front diff guy, but my first run this weekend with the Grizzly front has changed my mind. Wouldn't ever go back to a welded front in something like this again. It steered so much better!

I'm just going to dump some photos. Nothing real exciting.

I started the install of the TC power steering pump last night.

Tonight I'll mount the reservoir and hopefully mount the cooler.

Turns out you certainly can run a V belt using the Low Range TC mount, even though they advise you not to.

I'll post pictures once I'm done.

Not done, but the cooler is mounted as well as the fluid reservoir.

The cooler is mounted to the radiator to frame bracket. I will have to move the overflow bottle to the passenger side of the radiator, but I drilled out the spot welds on the little mounting bracket and will weld it to the passenger side radiator bracket.

Still have to pick up a belt and some 5/8 hose to go from the reservoir to the pump. My only fear at this point is if the fluid reservoir outlet is lower than the pump inlet. I haven't measured yet but it seems close.

The cooler is 1/4 the size of the radiator! 😂

Buttoned it up, with the exception of some heat sleeve to put on the reservoir to pump hose.

Final results, feels more consistent than the old Toyota 22r pump. It's definitely quieter and doesn't seem like it's being overworked like the Toyota pump was. I would bet this equates to cooler temps, especially with the new cooler.

I also included a picture of the v belt I used, in case anyone ends up down this road. Low Range advises that a serpentine belt must be used with their bracket, but thats not the case. I'm running a Low Range dual v belt balancer, Summit 340-204 power steering pump pulley, and the pictured belt. It might not hurt to go one small step shorter on the belt; mine has plenty of tension but I'm at the very end of the adjustment on the pump.

Any chance you have some info, maybe a part #, for the subaru master cylinder you are using? Are you using the stock booster?
