    Ok, the ram I got from West Texas Offroad finally took a crap. I am not going to bother with fixing it because I think it was a POS to begin with. :mad: Anyhow I believe it is a 1 1/2" with 8" stroke and I am looking for a replacement. The ram on it now has been on it for about 1 1/2" years and probably 3 to 4 thousand miles. I am looking for a good replacement that will last. I am thinking about getting one from PSC but want some info from everybody as to what they run and how it has held up.

    I'm running a rocklogic 1.5x8 and I love it. After seeing a friends psc ram, i've gotta say it's impressive.

    I love my PSC 1.75x8" ram. The guy i got my axles and crossover from ran a WTO ram and sheared the ram in half going up a slight hill. In comparison to my ram and koldsimers Rocklogic..The PSC has much larger heims, bigger ports into the ram, and i beleive a slightly larger ram. Not knocking rocklogic, great ram and hasnt failed koldsimer who is very hard on his rig.

    Only problem I have ever heard is leaking. Never heard about bad rams but there is always something right. Most rams are rebuildable unless its bent. Ill take it!!:wink1:

    WTO offroad says they have changed the rams they use and no longer have problems with leaking.

    don't throw the old ram away. I am close to you and would like it if you aren't going to do anything with it. even if it's not rebuildable it would be fun to tinker with.

    I'm running a PSC ram 1.5" x 8" and love it. The ports are bigger than the rocklogic and the ram is a quality designed piece.

    I like my PSC 1.75X8 but it has only been on the street. Of course the street driving was with a locked rear and welded front:D. Before I get flamed it was only around the block and not more than 15 MPH. I will give a full tested report after TDS.

    Once I get it off I am going to tear it apart and see if it can be fixed. What I didn't like about it is it pretty much leaked ever since I put it on. Another reason I am not going with another ram from WTO is I can get the PSC ram cheaper then what Matt wants for his rams.

    Try Trailtoyz on here. I got my ram with heims and tabs from him and it was cheaper than directly from PSC.
