A psc kit is in my future... distant future... Ya beryl, his ARB setup is the cats ass- a lot of time and effort into that setup I love it!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Thanks!

Re: Boogie wagon take 2

I still haven't installed my ram. They never gave me any instructions. Is there instructions? Because I'm planning to install mine in the spring. There are a couple of guys on this site that did ram install threads. I can’t say where they are but should be around somewhere. And I’ll write up all th...

Re: Boogie wagon take 2

I wonder if adjusting the stops is really a big deal. I 100% know when I’ve hit my steering stops and the ram gets no flow of the steering box isn’t turning. I suppose you could overload it but it’s pretty easy in my truck to tell when you’re there and not push any more The internal clocking is onl...

Re: Boogie wagon take 2

I haven’t disassembled the two boxes side by side, but I believe the 09 box has a slightly smaller piston than the big mopar box. It’s definitely bigger than the 08 and previous gears though. The big mopar box I have was tapped by Howe who did not use a valvebody like psc does. I’ve been curious to ...

Re: Boogie wagon take 2

I’m going to try the smaller box with a larger diameter ram and depending on results may try a little mix and match with boxes and different ram diameters. Probably going to get 2 additional rams of different sizes to fine tune force and speed. Right now it’s absolutely perfect for hauling ass, but ...

Re: Boogie wagon take 2

I don’t know off hand for the 6.4, if you can snap a pic of your pump and throw a set of dial calipers on the shaft I can probably point you to the right pulley

Re: Boogie wagon take 2

Marcus is right on, stay conservative with your pulley changes and you should be fine. A 10-20% underdriven pump will make a very noticeable difference.

I’d not run atf+4 underdriven though, amsoil or swepco or something similar would be a worthwhile change.

Re: Boogie wagon take 2

At least on the 5.7 you can directly swap in a TC style or CB style pump from PSC Howe KRC or whoever. I’ve been using a TC pump now with a filtered remote reservoir for a few years. It keeps up no problem. It’s 1000-1500psi and 4.5ish gpm and that’s with a stock sized pulley. If you need a little m...

I’m almost exclusively a user of baja designs, with the one exception being the rigid sae compliant fogs. They work really well for on road, never had any problems irritating other drivers with them. Excellent beam cutoff and spread. They aren’t nearly enough for offroad, but sounds like you got tha...

Re: Good gasket for diffs?

Another thing to consider, when you drain the diff fluid, you're not getting all of it, unless you open up the ends and drain the axle tubes as well. When your axle spins, it pushes fluid into the axle tubes. with the dana 44 in the jeeps, i would drain the dif, then jack up each side of the axle i...
