If you want to move the 1 (or 2?) holes to swap to a saginaw box I will gladly build you a steering box. Mine is working awesome now!

Durability wise I see no difference with the PSC gear. I screwed up rushing to do the other box and didn't clean it out thouroughly. I also didn't double check that my adjustments hadn't changed between mock up and final assembely but your adjustments need to be spot on with the PSC kit as well so that isn't an issue with the stock box.

I only have ~ $600 into my Hydro assist and it's all PSC pump, reservoir, ram, hoses, except the box and Derale cooler.

Only the top mounting hole needs to be moved, bottom holes are identical.
Fitted both a 2000 and a 1997 box on my Jeep, didn't mess with the lower 2 holes

I pulled one from the junkyard last week for $25. It was getting all new seals and o-rings when I pulled it apart anyway (roughly $30). Looks and works like new now!

No more work than you need to do when you install the PSC kit.

In my opinion do what works for you...me personally would not even think of driving anything off-road that wasn't full hydro....I do know that there is a company selling an assist kit that comes with all the necessary pieces so you don't have to drill anything....I want to say it's psc..but I've had way many beers since I did that wasted research....if I can't turn my wheel with my pinky while digging in the cooler..I won't drive it....but then again my off-road rigs have never been dual purpose either...while I may drive them on street I wouldn't say it was legal..but then I do live in Mississippi...here long as you have brakes, lights and a seatbelt they will let you register anything...

Why are you not using the Stykers? I think they would look reall good with your Raceline wheels.

Hey Lu, here is some information I have gathered about PSC Hydro Assist, if you have seen it already please ignore.

Thanks but I have no interest in full hydro especially for a street driven jeep.
