Hydraulic ram sources?
 
Does anyone know of a good source for hydraulic rams for hydro assisted steering set-ups? Also, would a 1.75" dia. ram react too slow for street use, and should I stick with a 1.5' dia. ram?

Take a look at what Scott offers HERE . He is a standup quality individual to work with. I am going to buy his hydro kit when I get set to do mine.

1. I just received the JCW "Jeeps Speciality" catalog,
2. They're selling a lot of new products,
3. One is a Hydraulic Steering System,
4. Only about $900...
5. Just remember it's JCW!

I haven't done it yet, but I work at John Deere and we use those steering rams on all our equipment. Bet a John Deere Dealer would have what you are looking for. I know they will be heavy duty. That is my course of action when/if I do this mod.

I am running a 1.5" ram from Bailey. It responds well on the street and nice on the trails. It is a compromise, so get a cylinder for what you plan to do most of with your jeep.

I'm not looking to spend that kind of money. I'm going to drill and tap my box for the fittings, and put everything together myself. I figure that I should be able to do it all for about $200.

Thanks for the link. What's the model number of the Bailey ram that you went with?
