I'm going to be dropping th ER27 into a Brat and lifting it. Has anyone used thwe electric ps pump on other applications or can it be done? I'd really like ps with the bigger tires and I don't see any way to mount up a mech pump without serious fab work.

Gary mounted the XT6's electric power steering pump in his 4 cyl XT (that normally use belt driven pumps).

You probably just need a power steering rack, some power steering hoses, and plug 'em into that electric pump.

i removed the belt driven pump on my XT Turbo.

now the XT Turbo is an EA82 model, so is your GL/DL an EA82? if so, the XT6 rack will swap right in without any issues at all. you'll need the rack and the hard lines that attach to the rack. if you do that, it's a straight swap, no custom work at all. then get the pump and lines as well. not sure the layout of the DL/GL though, might be some minor things in the way, spare tire or something. but that's no big deal.

i do not have it powered yet though, haven't decided on powering it full time or trying to get the stock power controller/computer set up to run the pump. but i know jeep guys that run these pumps as well and they run them constantly powered with no issues.
