I bought 8 and have 3/4 a bottle left. Good luck man and take your time

Any good threads to read so I have some sort of clue what I'm getting into tomorrow. I've never researched how to install hydro assist.

I'm guessing it might be tricky finding a spot for the pump with hi lines ?

If not please make one with lots of photos so it's easier for me when I get hydro assist

I'm slightly concerned about the resi placement as well. I've been doing some searching and found some things paired with all of the docs on the PSC website I think we have more than enough information. We just need to really focus and make sure we don't install anything upside down

Here are some resources I've found:

Here is a video one of the members of my club made of me at Penrose. When the video stops is when the steering completely let go but after watching the video I think I was having problems inside of A-hole and then by the time I hit coffin rock it was all over.

A few things...

1) It looks like all the rocks I've stacked over the last few years at coffin rock have all been washed away. But seriously.

2) Wheeling Penrose with a hardtop...baller

3)Patriot looks even harder than it did last time I was there.

Anyone wondering, we are still working on the hydro assist...waiting on a few small parts to make eveything happy. We had to modify the resi mount so it can be bolted directly onto the rokmen inner fender and stand upright while still allowing room for the wiper fluid.

You go out there and it's like you've never wheeled before. Trails out west make most of the trails here seem like Kiddy trails. The flip side to that is when you come back all your local wheeling spots seem boring lol.

I miss Colorado now That was a fun trail!

The rain seriously destroyed that trail. Even the entrance drops were a ton harder.

Here is where we stand with the Hydro Assist install.
Everything old is off
New Savvy Tie-rod is on
BMB mounts are on (less the misalignment spacers I didn't order)
Gear is mocked on
Pump is on
Hoses are all 50% made (need the final placement of the reservoir to determine final lenghts
Reservoir was bent to fit on the hi lines (Thanks Mike)

Still need to do:
PSC sent me a bad reservoir in the kit so they are sending me out a new one
Need the misalignment spacers from Blaine to finish the mount
Final assembly of the hoses
Final mount of cooler, reservoir and gear
Bleed the system
Check for clearance issues

Me too...I always feel like I'm at the kiddy table of wheeling. But I like there. One day I will drop indy and take the secret exit out (freedom) that Clifford showed me last time.

Thanks Lu.

Mike and I were working on the Jeep last night until 11:00. We were fighting mounting the steering box back to the frame for most of that time and still haven't got it. Anybody else out there have this problem?
