    What are most of you guys running with 40’s? Should I worry about doing hydro-assist without the XD box?

    SLO -- I think there is room for an XDII box in a Motech conversion. I have the Motech kit with an LC9. Planning on installing and XDII in a few months. The shop doing the work does a lot of XD installs and they measured out that it would fit. Don't know about the 6.0 dimensions.

    I wonder if Motech has tried that and opted against it for some reason. I’ll have to ask.

    Thanks. I was hoping/assuming that to be the case.

    I have the L94...not sure if that’s part of it. Or, I wonder if Robbie just hasn’t figured it out yet or hasn’t really tried where others have. I’ll probably just leave it as is until I have an issue.

    Take that with a grain of salt since it's coming from a guy running a Redneck Ram setup. I have the smaller cylinder, factory gear box, and factory pump with no cooler that turns my 37s with ease. However, with the research I did before going with what I've got, you shouldn't have any issues.

    It’s because we use the Jeep accessories and “others” don’t. The ac compressor lands right next to the steering gear, VERY close. You’ll be fine with a regular box and hydro assist.

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.
