    These aluminum EMS offroad ported steering caps are easy to install even with the steering box and pitman arm still on!

    Combine caps and a hydro kit for easy to install hyraulic assist steering.

    Caps ready to ship,

    EMS prices have increase with metal prices last year, but their website is not up to date.


    The main cap will sell for $75 and the top cap will be $15 with a $25 core charge.

    So a set is $90 after core refund.


    Thanks,

    I see that there are 2 major different places to tap into the boxes - either one better than the other (comparing this type to the 2 taps close to the knuckle) ?

    I've yet to see any pictures of failures of either type. If you port and tap the out side by the knuckle your talking about people have ran into problems with tire contact/ripping their lines out or coming close.

    These caps are an easy alternative to porting and tapping you own box and cleaning it all up with no metal shavings. Not to mention you can install it with the draglink and pitman still on the truck.
