CR power steering pump with slicks

Seems like my power steering pump is getting weak on me. Running Hoosier drag radials on the truck. Its starting to get hard to turn and whines now. Fluid level is good and it looks like it may have puked a little on me at one point. Noticed it after I made a few passes this past weekend. Truck is an 06 and probably still original pump at 140k. What are some of the CR guys running for power steering pump setups. Does anyone make a good aftermarket pump? Tried searching couldn't find much for CR trucks.

My 2 cents

Mopar sells an upgraded pump, higher flow for the upgraded steering gearbox they also sell.

I have had the pump on a previous truck with the original gearbox and it worked well. Turned 35s no problem, that's as close as I can get to the turning slicks in your case with that truck.

I put the new bigger gearbox on my 07 and it made a world of difference from the old 200k mile leaking box that it replaced. Kept the factory pump until it needs replaced.
