Hydraulic Steering Asst.

I’m looking to add Hydraulic Steering Asst to my 2014 JKU. Ever since I went to 37 inch tires they want to bind up when Wheeling, especially when going downhill. Right now I’m looking at PSC & Redneck Ram. Any advice or reviews on these systems would be greatly appreciated.

I know several with both. The WTO Redneck Ram is the route I will take. The system works very well, however I will be adding the cooler. Eventually your pump will give out and you can add those pieces as you go. Seems like I have seen more issues with the PSC.

Life without Hydraulic and locked axles sucks.

Do you guys have any follow up opinions on your Redneck Ram kits? I just lost my power steering today while wheeling. Looking to upgrade and not wanting to dish out the $2.7k for the PSC system...

Redneck ram kit works great...but if you "lost" your power steering that means your existing(and I am assuming stock) pump went out. West Texas kit does not include a pump so you will need a new one. PSC has pumps that you can match to your ram size and will provide the proper flow.

I do not have one yet, but I can tell you that the folks I run with have all added inter coolers and most have a reservoir as well.

great thread. I just upgraded to the prorock44 and 37 inch Nitto Trail grapplers. I am still breaking in gears so haven't wheeled yet. Will be very interested to hear about the on road manners of the redneck ram as well. Is it twitchy, or close to factory feel...etc
