Thanks man. I've got a deal pending on 5th 35x12.50x16 tire for my spare. Once I pick that up I'll be adding a tire carrier to the bumper. Probably going the AtoZfab route for the latch and hinge.

Picked up my drilled and tapped steering box today. Got the old box swapped out and the new one in. Now I just need to bleed the power steering system and weld on the mounts. Can't wait to wheel next weekend with hydo assist!

Where did you go to get it drilled and tapped? I have a spare box waiting for the same but I don't know anyone that knows how.

I had a buddy do it. He said he took a bunch of pictures, I'll post them up once he sends them to me.

Check out comp 4x4's hinge too. It's the biggest one I could find and is great for add-ons like gas cans, etc.

Thanks man

Here's the locations for tapping the WJ PS box. I got most of the info from Saturn and Shinobi's build threads and my buddy did the work.




I used 90* fittings going into the box (needed for clearance between the box and fan shroud) and straight fittings with 90* adapters at the ram side. I'll get a pic of the ram mounted once it quits raining.

Carry lots of replacement fittings and hoses. We learned that with Shinobi's in Moab. And lock-tite the bolts that hold on the hydro assist ram.

What did he have the most problems with? I got a mounting kit from WTO that uses some type of locking nut on the bolts. It was a PITA to get them on, and I can't see them coming loose, but I'll keep an eye on it, thanks.

My 4x4 club has a wheeling trip planned this weekend, so I'll get to test her out

One fitting on the ram started leaking and then broke. Luckily he had another. And theN one of the bolts backed out and then ended up breaking out of the last couple threads that held it in. No locking nut on his.

Pretty sure everything is fixed now. You will love it and wonder why you didn't do it years ago.
