    For those with hydro assist, how long are your lines? About how much lift do you have and did you tap the caps or the side of the box?

    Mine, the fitting are on the sides, and I don't know the exact length of the hoses, but I believe they're about 2ft or so each. I have about 4" to 5" susp. and flex like a mofo /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Thanks. I was hoping to order everything at once, but I'm starting to think I'll just order the ram and the fittings, get them mounted, and then do the lines. I'm more concerned (time-wise) about getting the ram.

    Not a problem. I think the most time consuming part of it was positioning the mounting tabs at the correct place, to allow full ram travel. Once that's out of the way, it's all gravy from there. (actually, I believe you're doing the weld/tapping of the box yourself....I'm too much of a wuss to do that /forums/images/icons/smile.gif )....I'm sure that'll take some time. Good luck.

    ps, I would get about maybe 5 feet of hose and work from there. The more I really think about it, The more I'm starting to think my hoses are more than 2ft long.
