I am planning on building a new rig. I would like to run Hydraboost for the brakes but would also like to use the Rock Ram for steering assist. Now do I need to run 2 PS pumps? Can I run one pump just for the hydraboost and the other for the steering? It just seems like a whole lot of PS fluid moving around!

I have not done a ram assist on a hydro boost setup yet but it should stiil work. The hydro boost works off of the pressure of the fluid and not so much the volume. The ram assist needs both but with the larger 2" ram it depends mostly on volume and only needs the pressure when in a bind. I say give it a try. You can always add the othe pumpat a later time. I can also tell you how to get more pressure and volume from your stock pump.

Just finished and test ran my CJ with its new ram assist steering and old hydro boost that's been on it a few years. Seems to work fine, hitting the brakes and cranking the steering at the same time in some big rocks and its all good. <IMG SRC="smilies/glasses.gif" border="0">
The pump i'm using IS modified by shimming the spring for more pressure and drilling the hole for more volume.

I ended up getting an AGR setup but I'd already modified the stock pump. So I'll use it tell it gives out, then install the AGR pump that came with the "kit".

I was planning on the AGR setup with the Hydro. Glad to here it works. I'll be addind a LARGE cooler and probably a dedicated fan. Just worries me about doing that much work and not having the added benefit. Right now my stock pump has fun pushing the 38's This new setup would be pushing 39's

Thanks LakeRat If you have that info laying around please toss it my way. I now have the small stock 94 YJ pump with remote resevior but this setup is most likely to be with a regular GM pump

If you want advice then I'll give it to you, But you probably won't like it.
DON'T BUY AN AGR SETUP!!!
It's a good product but I'ts a rip off They Charge you twice as much for products that you can buy off the shelf or that you could make for pennies.

I am running the AGR Rockram with a hydroboost brake setup. I have the slightly larger canister that was on the original hydroboost pump and an aftermarket cooler. No problems. I'm sure there are cheaper ways to do it but the AGR was quick and easy, and has worked OK and the hydroboost was free so all in all it averages out.

I did, he needed me to send my box to modify, which is fine except that I live 3000 + miles away. Shipping alone would have been over 300 bucks(which is not Lakerats fault, thats just the way it is). Lakerat probable does good work and seemed like a nice guy on the phone but its not as easy to get things done when you live on an Island in the middle of the ocean.
