I was told by a very reliable rockcrawler/ fabricator, Randy Ellis (www.randyellisdesign.com), that hydraulic assist has problems supplying enough pressure for "fast steering" and that its not needed for my application (i.e. driven to work 2 times a week/rockcrawler/trailrig). He related that I shouldn't even need it for 38's and that a good crossover steering setup is all that is needed (by the way he said that ORD's kit is the only complete kit he's seen). Is this true? Randy knows his stuff and he's very reliable in the "you don't need this" department. Just check out his website and you'll see his expert work. You guys who keep up with ARCA probably have heard of him. He won the second Top Truck with one of the first set of boggers too! With Chevy drivetrain he he! chrome sucks about chrome: "I didn't know it was possible for something to both suck and blow"
