Couple shots of my new hydrosteer

Bought the cover from a vendor on pirate 4x4

Bought the stage II kit from matt at west texas off road.

Let me tell you, once you drive a super duty with hydrosteer, you'll never go back to having a regular steering box.

This kit turns like butter!

It's more like rack and pinion isn't it?
It's a hydraulic cylinder going in and out instead of a gear box and pitman arm.

I believe this is a hydraulic assist setup, it works to assit the pitman arm and gearbox, not replace it. Right?

This is correct. It's 150 times more powerful than stock. Takes all the stress off the stock weak *** box.

When my 42's come in, it will really shine.
