Worn power steering pump?

Just bought a 03 F-250 6.0 and when the truck is at a complete stop it feels like theres no power steering. The truck has a 2'' lift and is riding on 35'' tires. I tried putting it in nuetral and reving the engine but there was no change. Is this possibly a worn power steering pump or do I need an aftermarket power steering pump thats rated for oversized tires?

Could be the pump. How do the brakes feel? Those 2 systems share a pump

brakes feel ok, no problem stopping the truck but it does take a good amout of force. much more so than my F-150.

Shouldn't take that much effort to stop a Super Duty. I believe the 6.0 Super Duty's had hydro-boosted brakes. Know of another truck you can draw a comparison from?

Possibly. I shouldn't have trouble turning oversized tires right? I only notice it when the truck is in a parking lot and i'm making my 10 point turn to get in a spot.
