    I did not see that. I guess the "up to 37's" are in the description for a very good reason and after extensive testing lol.

    This is AWESOME! So all u need to replace is the steering gear? The stock pump and reservoir are adequate enough?

    I guarantee you that you would still bend a drag link with 37's especially being that you could apply so much more force with the steering gear alone. I personally would still recommend a PSC ram assist as it will help make steering a LOT easier and it would help alleviate the forces being placed on your drag link considerably.

    I still think I will just do a ram, while I would love the box alone, the price jump to have the option of a ram later is just too much for me when I can get a full psc kit for a few hundred more than just the ported box.

    You know, you bring up a good point. While I can see a consumer saving some money by getting this instead of the Ram Assist kit, there really does not seem to be a ton of benefit, especially for people who already run a Ram Assist kit. Maybe I am wrong here and I am open to anyone else's opinions on the matter.

    My question to all of the Ram Assist users: Have any of you been able to damage or destroy the steering box while using Ram Assist?

    nice upgrade

    I'm also wondering what ported and balanced means

    For those of us with ram assist, does this allow the system to run without the additional reservoir? would like to reclaim some engine compartment space.

    I'm about to change plugs and already getting anxiety on accessing the passenger side lol

    Cool

    So a couple of weeks ago I was out at Sand Hollow shooting videos and stills for this year.
    We borrowed a JK from Twisted Jeeps in Moab.
    This JK has our 4" SPORT system on 35's.
    We found our self on a buggy trail and had to turn around.
    We started to really bind up the steering, I told the driver to take it easy as I didn't want to deal with a steering break.
    He let me know that it was the new box, no issues at all.

    I spoke to PSC this am at length about the XD box. They just made the first ported one and haven't run it with hydroassist yet. Still determining pump size, reservoir, etc. The ported/balanced box is setup for hydro, but details aren't really there yet. It's typically the racers who break a sector shaft or something major after going hydroassist on the stock box. The XD box + hydroassist is really the racing or "extreme overkill" setup (per PSC). The box upgrade is a good choice for those avoiding hydroassist or who broke a stock box and are looking to upgrade.

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.
