    PSC Big Bore XD? Yes or NO?

    So Im looking at upgrading my steering and have kind of shyed away from hydro, I know there were some issues with this box when it first came out but curious what those of you running it think of it now, and are you running the stock steering pump ?

    i've thought about it. but, every time i do it doesn't seem to make much sense over just doing hydro in the first place.

    Agreed. Especially since it can be done for cheaper than the box alone. I'm very happy with my Redneck Ram kit. $600 and haven't had a single issue.

    I have the ported version but it was just installed so we will see. I think it was worth it. I have 40" tires.

    It really does make a big difference in steering up to 37s. Anything bigger and you are going full hydro. If you go XDll-R, you can order it ported and capped. You then can add and build as you like. If you feel you need the ram down the road, you can order the ram and upgraded pump and reservoir and add it as you need. You will have a extremely strong gear to work with verses the OEM gear that you can shear the shaft right off of. Its an easy way to work up to it verses diving right in to full hydro.

    but then you have spent 2x the amount of hydro when it is all said and done.

    Not quite twice and if you are not running 40s there isnt as much need to move to hydro. Ive been running 37s for awhile on an XDll and have no need to go to hydro. Its been on rocks lock and buried in sand locked and it turns them fine. Its not two finger steering in those scenarios but it turns. But I am set up if I ever go to 40s and want to add a ram its a simple bolt on application. The gear and my axle are ready.
