Greg had a pretty janky p/s system. Factory hoses doing circles cuz he has done some body work.

But he's completely redoing it with all new lines and pump with a massive cooler. It should be pretty nice when its done.

That actually might not be a bad idea. It would help cover up the massive bondo fail on the drivers rear quarter panel. I very well may have to do that. Maybe we will have a camo paint party next time your up.

Hows working on the assist doing? I pulled the trigger on the pump and reservoir, will probably be getting the rest here soon. We'll probably be doing ours around the same time, we could have a hydro install party.



Basically just waiting to get everything aligned and make sure there are no steering issues before throwing anything on.

Looking for: 03-06 interior plastic trim. PM me.

I just got the rebuild kit in yesterday, sadly its not a "rebuild" kit per say, more of just a complete seal kit since it didnt include any bearings. After looking for a second time I cant seem to find a kit that includes any bearings, so im just going to use the seal kit.

Now that my hectic schedule is slowing down I can start getting back to doing little things on my lunch breaks at work. So today ill be going out back and pulling a gear box out of one of the parts wj's and I should be tearing into it tonight or tomorrow.

What pump/resi kit did you go with? Im not going to do a pump upgrade yet, but that factory style aluminum reservoir that PSC is blowing out right now looks pretty damn sexy. Im thinking of ordering it when I order my ram. Im still trying to figure out wether to go with a 1.5" bore or a 1.75" bore ram. Im leaning towards the 1.5" since the wj see's a lot of street driving, especially in winter. Im worried the 1.75 would be too slow for a street vehicle, but im waiting to hear back from PSC.

lol a punisher symbol might be a little much for the little toyota lol. But who knows what would happen with You, Cricks, Yuhas, and I getting together for the paint job lol.

I got the remote res kit. The ones that are on sale are on sale for a reason, and that's because they suck and cause cavitation. There have been threads on here about that specific res and the problems were fixed when putting the remote on which has baffling and whatnot. I even talked to Lance last week and said I didn't want to run the built in aluminum res one they make and he said "Yeah you definitely don't want that for an assist kit, you want the remote res pump kit."

There is a reason all the good assist/full hydro setups have a remote res, and the placement of it is just as important. I would run the aluminum tank replacement res if I was just upgrading the steering pump and that's it.

Yep, after looking into it, with free shipping and $25 more you can have this, and it has a big *** 10AN feed to the pump.

Yeah, Ill prolly just go that route then. I just didnt want to try and find a place to mount it, but that shouldnt be too much of an issue.

Reading on their site too, it looks like you want the reservoir above the pump inlet if possible, and less than 16" away. Crazy how much small things matter, but then again you are dealing with moving a lot of fluid at a high psi.

Yeah that fancy stuff is going to have to wait for now. Im just going to stick to the original plan and use the stock pump and see how it works.

Got a gearbox out of a parts wj today and got it on my bench. I started looking at it and realized I ordered the wrong size fittings. I ordered 3/8npt when I needed 1/4npt. So Ive got new fittings and a tap on the way, should all be here friday.


As far as the ram goes, the wj steering has 6" of travel. Perfect for a 6" ram. But, keeping in mind the axles im building, I may need a larger ram down the road once the new axles are finished. Now im torn. Do I order the 6" ram and use it untill the axles are ready? Or do I order the 8" ram and internally limit it, that way I buy it once and am done? The second option is more work obviously. Im leaning towards getting the 6" and using it, then selling it when I need the larger one.

You shouldn't have an issue selling the 6" ram once you're done with it, thats the same stroke I just ordered....
