    I was already running the Synergy.

    I bent the shit out of my OEM with the OEM box. The Big Bore would bend it in a heart beat. You need to upgrade it. I run a fusion 4x4 and am very happy with it.

    I saw an aftermarket tie rod bend with both the PSC big bore and ram assist installed. Bent right at the clamp.

    Hey guys just a quick update. I've had my box installed for a few hundred miles now; it turns like butter and is solid as a rock on the highway. However, I was curious if any of you guys have developed an audible tick when steering? It doesn't happen at any specific spot in the steering stroke and appears to be dependent how much load is on the box. It's difficult to pinpoint where the noise is coming from, and you can't feel the tick when touching the box .

    I'll get in touch with PSC, but figured I would ask here first. Apologies for the spastic video

    Yeah, that’s odd. It sounds like it it may in the linkage. Track bar, drag link and or tie rod ends can get a little play and make a sound like that. Definitely talk with PSC. Their customer service is top notch.

    I have noticed that when I turn in somewhere making a left, a left only I get a quick tick, I can't replicate the tick like you can by shifting left and right with your steering. Mine is usually with a hard left typically a 90 degree from a main road. Can't do it at slower speeds needs to be a sufficient 5 to 10 mph roll/coast.

    Well, I just finished installing the PSC Big Bore XD Cylinder assist kit. (SK 281)

    Psc included pre-made pressure lines, no need to use any of the OEM line for anything. They also included lots of parts for just in case scenarios 9hose fittings etc). The new steering box is a BEAST!! You will need help installing that if nothing else. The install instructions are nonexistent, there are some drawings that show routing for the hoses but not much else. I sent an email to PSC and asked if there are install instructions and they sent me a Youtube video put out by Havoc Offroad which was helpful but not complete. I got most of the install done but still had some questions so I called PSC and they were very helpful...

    I'm running 37's on my JK and the difference is night and day!!! I can sit there and spin the wheel lock to lock with one finger. I've only done a short test drive and I'm very happy so far. I did detect a small leak at the steering box (probably just need to tighten a fitting).

    So far my overall impression is Amazing. I can't wait to get out on the rocks and really test it out!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
