Steering Pump Went out

[New to the forum. My power steering pump went out and want to know whats everybody using other than the sock one? I have a 01 superduty with 12'lift, on 40"s need something that will last and handle off roading. Want to upgrade my steering so been looking at the redneck, PSC, and rockram, steering set ups. Dose some one have any of these setups on there truck? Want to now what you guys think of them are they worth the money or what? Any info will be appreciated.

I have a PSC ram and One Up Offroad diff mount on mine. So far I like it. I have the stock box ported. Alot of guys go with the redhead though..

Do you have crossover steering on your truck?

Nice set up, is it a bolt on kit? What do they do when they port your box and were you get it done? Don't have the crossover steering have coil over suspension in the front and dual stabilizer with fox shocks, did the axle swap on it.

I sent my box to psc and had them port it. Bought my hoses and lines locally. Then bought the OUO mount/kit.

Can you get a high steer knuckle for the newer axles. Mine steered better with the 40s and 12 inches of lift with crossover steering then on 6" and 37s without it...

Did you put the kit together and how does it drive with the new hydro assist? I also just did a conversion from leafs to 06 coil front end on my 02. I would really like to have a truck that turns again as it makes parking the boat in the back yard almost impossible. Don't tell anyone but I used my wifes suburban to park the boat from time to time. LOL

I was told that the high steer knuckles were unavailable on the 05-up front end. I have a 12" lift with 40s and my geometry is fine. I know the 05-up box is substantially better than the earlier boxes, larger inlet, etc-I would bet swapping one in to an earlier truck would result in easier turning and less abuse to the pump. Keep in mind however that the 05-up box requires a different pitman arm.

Yes I did. It drives great. I accidentally got a too large of a ram, so the steering isn't as responsive, but I can while parked turn my wheel with one finger. I am going to change things up in the next few weeks and get a smaller ram and that will tighten everything up real nice.

I have driven several trucks with hydro assist that have tires as large as 46's with well set up kits. You can pretty much turn the wheel with your finger and it steers as good OR better then stock.

I also had concerns having such a large lift and tire combo about the pitman arm. One of my friends down here had her pitman arm break off while driving. So to me that was my main reason I wanted a nice kit. I don't want to have that happen to me.

Thanks for the info. What size ram do you have on the truck now and what size are you going to replace it with? Did you buy the ram from OUO. Also where did you purchase the mounts from. Thanks

That was part of the problem is that I ordered the ram myself...

I got the ram with the correct stroke length, but just slightly too large. I will see if I can find what I ordered and what I should have ordered. But the ram length may be different for 05+ trucks. I will see what I can dig up.

You can buy all this from OUO/Truck Toyz. The mounting hardware was all from OUO's kit. They make some real killer steering setups. Mine is pretty much the cheap version. They are spendy, but for me well worth it.

This is the badass version... you can almost see the steering setup below... Only picture I can get to right now at work.
