    Chief rams work just fine they are cheap 50$ is what I paid for mine. I've run it for a year and no problems yet and I drive to the trails 40 min. or so!

    which ram are you running? the one in the setup is 2'' bore 8'' stroke. im trying to figure out if it would be any cheaper or better over the tractor supply ram, a orbital off of polyperformance and a fluid resoviour from summit.
    do you remember how much your cost you total? did you run a chief orbital as well?

    I run the 2x8 ram, I'm only using it to assist not full hydro. I have 79$ in the ram , fittings, and 2 hoses from northern tool!
