    I was looking for the rock ram steering arm setup. i think it was called a redneck ram from some club in texas. anybody know where this is? i did a search on here and msn and got nada. i was looking at it a while back and it looked just like the marine steering for rudders we use in the coast guard. thinking about making one for myself.?????????????

    thanks for the help

    [shameless pulg] i have heard nothing but good things about these guys, and you get their Stage II kit for 399 if you are a ColoradoK5.com member. so you can sign up and still save $25! what a deal! [/shameless plug]

    if you really have the know how, i don't think it would be that hard. I like kits as it takes the guess work of "what PSI, what bore," etc. out of the equasion.

    For only $400 to have Hyrdo-ram and your box fixed up, i don't see the down side. It is a proven product.

    its the 400 dollars that kills me. it would definatley be easier, but not near as much fun as doing it myself. I may not ever do this. i dont plan on ever running much more than 35's. also ther arent any rocks here, but sometin=mes trying to climb out of a 3 foot skidder rut you can here everything whining. thats how i blew the pump on my Z -71

    thanks
