I am currently having a Rock Rod made, and I want to improve my steering too sometime in the near future. I have read alot of articles on both hydro assist and crossover, and have some questions. I know stock steering is hard to turn when you are twisted up, so would hydro assist solve this problem? or do is crossover a must also? I don't think I really want to do crossover if I really don't have to.(poor college student, and crossover can get $) Is the hydro kit enough? This truck is going to be an all around truck. DD and trail runner. I plan to run some rough twisted up stuff for a few years here in CO and at home in AZ, but I don't want to dump more money then I have to into something that is not necessary. I am planning on building an offroad only truck when i get this college thing over and get back to AZ for all the really tough stuff, and my current truck will probably be tow rig and lighter trail action.
