    hey gang. I was thinking about how I wanna set up my PS situation in the future. I'd like to run a hyrdo boost steering...and I'm also considering going with a milemarker winch (hyraulic). Would these be compatible on the same system? If I did do this, I planned on having a cooler (duh!)...but should I get a HD pump and a BIG resevoir too? any way to do these upgrades cheaper than via AGR? Ideas appreciated,

    J

    YOU are about the busiest guy I know.............D60 talk, FF disc brake talk.............revolvers...........etc.

    There's a local guy from OBH that has an M12000 winch coming for sale...........not hydraulic but think it's a good deal.

    PS thoughts - most guys on here seem to go with Rock Ram stuff as opposed to Hydroboost as stand alone systems, but both seem to be in favor. You have BIG plans dontcha............if you need all this stuff I mean. Seems the steering assist stuff is mainly for rock work...........unless I'm wrong. You going crawlin'?
