I like my PSC full hydro system. I have not ran Howe but i have heard a lot of good things about them. Both systems run more then a 1,000 and I know the PSC system does not even include a cooler. You can try to piece a system together to stay in your price range.

I am not sure how much that helps.

I would strongly suggest you save your money and buy a complete kit from a reputable manufacturer and have a kit that works great. You can piece one together with lift truck and farm tractor parts and fight to make it all work together till you crash into a tree.

Just my opinion.

search pirate for a build your own kit, I have seen there list, you can put one together yourself for less than $1000 but I have not yet seen a full kit for less than about $1500.

i am with Ironman on that, that is one of the many reason i dont have a set up yet.

I don't see the need for a full kit if you do assist....you can tap the box yourself, have lines made locally, plumb it yourself, ect, ect.....just buy the ram from a reputable company so you know that is right and the rest is not hard. (At least mine wasn't, and it works great). I am running a ram from trail gear, self tapped box, self plumbed cooler, self modded pump.

if your determined to piece it together I have a PCS ram and brand new lines I'll sell. The ram is the HD JK ram thats used in many of the kits they sell. I'll dig up a part number.

sigh for dumb people. you can do a complete working full hydro system on a poorboy budget for around 100$ if you want to scavenge a bit. If you have to ask how, you can't do it.

I'm sure that is a very reliable/robust system.... And I'm sure you would say it runs true at 80mph and you cantake your hands off the wheel too!

please pieve me together a highway speed worthy full hydro system for $100. I will pay you $400 for your time. It sounds well worth it for you. Let me know when you have the parts so I can meet you with cash.
