    Who here is running a Hydrolic steering ram setup? I am looking into purchasing the parts myself to save some bucks.... The only part that is cloudy is where do I tap into the steering box. From photos I have seen It looks as if the box is tap near the original lines that go into it, but I also have seen one hose coming from right out of the front of the box and one right near the shaft adjustment bolt on top. Has anyone here done this with out sending their steering box out. I have an extra box if I mess up......Any info anyone has is much appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Mike

    i know you didn't wanna send it out.....

    but the dude at westtexasoffroad will tap it for you cheap, plus you then can probably pick his brain for the best setup... unass the 75 bucks and have it done right, the first time....

    Sending it out ain't the end of the world, but I was under the impression it was more like 200 just to have it tapped. I guess I will have to give em a call tommorrow...
    Thanks
