    Who is running either one of these systems on their truck with x-over steering? Which one is better and why?

    I've read good things on both systems just wondering about personal experiences with the one you have good or bad. Going to add to my K5 pretty soon.

    Any input would be much appreciated!!

    Eric.

    I run the WTO and love it, the AGR steering box that I used to have leaked right out of the box. Plus the service you get from Matt is awesome.

    Ditto on Steve's response. Matt's system is the way to go. No problems with the install and no problems with the product since the install.

    I wouldn't buy the cap for my steering pump from AGR. I have never heard anything good about them, especially their customer service. Their stuff is ok, but it is expensive, leaks, and I hope you never have any problems with it because you will never get service from them. Why pay twice for AGR, when you could have a better system from Matt with great customer service? I have not been impressed with Matt Burkett, or his company. My $.02.

    Ok I have had both the systems on my truck and all kinds of problem with the AGR set up like hard to steer when it get hot,pump burning up,the box just took a sh!t for no reason, and the damm ram leaks. So have you head enough yet. Let me TELL you what you need to do just call Matt H. with West Texas Offroad and he will set you up a system for your truck he will even save you the money on the AGR pump because the mod. is posted on his web page for FREE ( what a hell of a guy) Save your money and call Matt H.
    Man I almost fogot I run the W.T.O. ram system I have not had any problems with it and sure works better on the trail. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Am i screwed because i have an agr pump and box? Right now i have no problems with the set-up but i'am thinking it might puke at a bad time. Only funny thing it does is when i take a corner under power it squeals. it's unfrequent but still worries me. I guess when i go hydro WTO can fix my box, if it needs it , when they do the mods....
