Some people use Sidekick units, others use units out of Celicas. The Celicas work great if they are set up right but will spit fluid if not.

Im thinkin about using power steering out of a toyota mini truck. Ive seen people sleeve and plate the frame to mount the box but not sure if they're using the truck pump and reservoir. Any one out there running this set up and can pass some tips my way?

That's a broad statement. There are a ton of choices for power steering for the sammy, especially if you can weld and cut.  I would stay away from Rocky Road though, I got the GM Alternator kit from them and the holes didn't match up, and I have heard the same thing from people that got their power steering kit.  My two cents.
