In reverse, it's still a challenge to turn but not like it was. But thats not a normal situation that we'd encounter.

    Nice thanks,
    Is your box ported and capped in case you wish to add ram assist in the future?

    I believe so, there are two extra bolts or possible port locations on the gear when I compared it to the OEM. I didn't think of it at the time but it would make sense that what they were.

    Yep... I had already been running different draglink and tie rod/track bar... didn't think about it, but I guessing it would be smart to replace that stock one!

    Hey guys! Quick question for those who are running this box or maybe just anyone who has more of an idea than me LOL

    I just got my PSC box and I'm super stoked to have it installed, but I was curious on if I needed the lines and pump to go with it? From my understanding is I won't need to, but the current lines on the JK are super restrictive and I should make the switch eventually?

    Main reason I'm asking is my current box is bad and I didn't want to pay the money in the first place but I choked it up and bought it and would rather not have to spend another $520 on top of the $900 I already paid for the box..

    Thanks for any help guys I appreciate it!

    I did not upgrade them in mine and it does not require it. I may in the future though. Beyond that when my box worked it was great, but over a couple of weeks it developed a lot of play in the steering wheel. PSC is swapping the box for me. Great company!!

    Not yet, I hope this week. But it is definitely worth the investment. I was up on Drummond island in Michigan all last week and even with the play in the box, it had no trouble moving the 37s on large rocks, sand and mud while locked up. As I stated above, I would strongly recommend a upgraded drag link. With the added power, It will bend a stock link easily.

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.
