    the larger the hydro assist the slower the ram is. So if you want to DD your rig then you don't want a large ram so the steering isn't sluggish at speed.

    Yes it can be used on a DD but you should probably stick with a 1.5" or 1.75" ram. 2" ram might be iffy unless you have a high volume pump or something.
