The serpentine belt runs a lot! Your alternator, water pump, power steering pump,radiator pulley AC and also has an automatic tensioner, idler pulley and of course the crankshaft pulley. If your belt broke you will NOT have brakes, or like you said power steering etc.. . The truck will run but it is not safe for multiple reason like overheating etc.. My belt broke in my yard 50 yards from the garage. I started the trick and carefully drove it in. Parked it and then bought a new gates HD belt, new water pump and also I found that the idler pulley (small pulley on the top of the belt routing) was bad. Replaced all 3 and been good ever since. Hope this helps. Good luck!
