I run stock pump single ended ram Eaton orbital.2.5 turns lock to lock. Brian Cole from colewerx told me what to get and I have never had an issue.plenty fast and I have 700 bucks into my setup. PsC sucks! Have seen way too many issues with them. Good orbital and a 2" ram it will work good. Brian told me they tried 2.5 rams and they were too slow. Cory has full howe on his buggy front and back.his rear is stupid fast..howe is badass stuff but big money. Don't really think its needed if you do your research.I can give you the # off my orbital. That is the main thing is a good orbital.

I also like the truck looking buggies but the station wagon tube addition looks good

Nothing but problems from my Psc. Agree Lance is of no real help.
The tube lines came out nice. Can't wait to see how the front is cut in.

I've always had a good experience with Lance. He's going out of his way to help take care of me.

I ordered a Howe setup yesterday. Whoever I talked to on the phone was quite informative and nice to deal with. He also didn't try to up sell me the trophy truck pump because he didn't think I would need it. He said with this setup It will be 3/4 turn from center to full lock. 2-1/4 double ended ram, tc pump

Run a Psc p pump on my old rig. I think it's multiple problems se ram slow orbital not enough vol on pump. It works fine for trail driving so I will prob leave it alone and focus on new buggy. I just don't want same prob on new buggy. Howe setup for new buggy is tc pump and faster orbital de ram
