    Hammer,
    Thanks for the link. Thanks to the guy who wrote the article and took the pix as well....heep or no heep. He modified the box for the fittings in a different location than all the other boxes I have seen (AGR &amp; westtexasoffroad). May try to modify mine that way as well. Has anyone spec'd out a ram to use yet??? Northern has some but I think they may be too long....

    THINK!
    how hard is it to look at it and decide which way the pressure will push.
    no one here can tell you which way to plumb it with out knowing which way your ram will face.
    or trial and error with the ram dangling
