    Which hydro assist ram do you prefer, PSC or RockLogic?

    It looks like the PSC ram uses a male heim on the cylinder end and a female heim on the shaft end whereas the RockLogic uses male heims on both ends.

    I'm thinking that the female heim end on the shaft would be stronger but what do i know.

    Just installed a complete PSC system on my M880. It's a really nice kit and that one finger action on the wheel is really cool!

    Hope to have trail report in a couple of weeks.

    Can you or Bushwhacker confirm the heim end style for me. Like i said, it looks like the PSC ram uses a male heim on the cylinder and a female heim on the shaft.

    I just installed the rocklogic a couple weeks ago. My front is welded, and before I couldnt turn it on flat ground. Now I can put my tire against a rock and turn the tires and it will slide my truck away.

    Can you confirm the heim types on the rocklogic ram. Pics appear to both be male heims.

    My ram from PSC has a male heim on the body and a female heim on the shaft.

    How long did you have to wait until the ram arrived once you ordered it? Their website says that the 1.5" ram is custom order and may take 2 weeks before it is shipped.

    Mine is female also on the shaft end and male on the other. I went with the 1.75x8" ram. Ordered mine through PORC, which was quite abit less than ordering direct from PSC and had it within 4 days.

    What is PORC? Is there a website somewhere for them? I just talked with Kelvin at PSC and i can get the ram without the hardware for $137.00. Not a bad price considering i'm sure they don't come with good heims anyways.

    Ok, i made up my mind. I'm going with the PSC ram. It appears to be a slightly stronger ram than the rocklogic ram only because of the shaft end heim type being a female heim threading over the shaft than a male heim threading into the shaft.

    I am going to call back tomorrow and ask what heims they use and if they aren't the FK then i'll order it without the hardware kit.

    The female ends are more prone to splitting open. But to each there own:doah:

    What about the shaft splitting open because of a heim being screwed into it? I would rather replace a broken heim than a shaft.

    Also, i left an e-mail for rocklogic and they still haven't gotten back to me. I did actually call and talk to Kelvin at PSC and they answered the phone right away. I might call rocklogic tomorrow and see how fast they actually answer the phone and can help me. I would still like to ask them about what fitting goes into their ram. PSC uses -6 into the ram.

    The shaft is a harder material then the heim body.

    As for the fitting into the ram I believe Rocklogic, PSC, and WTO rams all use the -6 fittings. I KNOW Rocklogic and WTO have the same because I am running WTO fittings in my Rocklogic ram. Im sure PSC uses the same since its the same size ram.

    A buddy of mine ran the WTO ram (female ends) and he sheared off the heim that by the body. The problem with the female ends is that there is more side force since you cant screw them in all the way to the actual bearing part of the heim.
