Hydro on, few things to adjust and make better, but I'm happy.





Cleaned the mud off finally from Canada.... That trip was hard on the truck....

It works, seems pretty good so far. It's about 3 turns lock to lock, just about right imo.

Think I may need turn up my pressure on my pump, I think it may be bypassing a little at low rpm or when not moving. Any tips on that? Saginaw pump btw

No, not yet. I turned it block to lock about 20 times tonight on jackstands, put it down, steered good for one cycle then got hard, so maybe more air.
