Got in the truck this morning and found that the PS and PB were not working. After doing a search I found another guy that had the same problem, reved up to about 2K RPM and I heard the PS pump make some noise as if something started turning and it all started working. I'm curious what the fix has been for this at the dealer, a new pump? I'll be taking it in as soon as I can get all the mods back to stock.

I would see if it does it again before taking it in. Maybe just a piece of dirt got in the pressure regulator valve and stuck it open, may not ever happen again.

There have been several reports on this site of the power steering pump shaft shearing off. If that happens, it obviously won't work again until repaired. If the shaft is sheared, you can tell by releasing the pressure of the serpentine belt and see if the pulley on the pump will move in and out. Is the truck under warranty?
