The redneck ram hyd assist used a very small ram in my opinion...

Or you could use this as an opportunity to "upgrade" to something commonly found, like the TSC ram.

Are you supposed to bypass the steering box or put caps in when you run without the ram?

I thought you were supposed to cap it.

Still waiting on story of how a badass rig like yours could break a ram at the dunes. I don't buy the record breaking jump story or you would have been bragging about it since yesterday.
