I had mine done at PSC and it works great. You will need to call them to get the current pricing. I have read some of the posts and i would rather have them rebuild the box as well as drill the holes.

I've done a few '99-04 gear boxes but not the '05-newer ones so if they are different I am no help. I usually recommend PSC as I only use their rams. I don't use the PSC rod ends as the chrome coating doesn't last on the gulf coast.

I made a mount that bolts to the differential cover but after 4-5 months in would cause the bolts to back out and gear oil to leak. I now have it set up with tabs welded to the axle near the track bar mount and have had no issues.

I buy all the hardware from AN Adapters & AN Hose Ends and Hose | AN Plumbing. I use XRP stainless steel hose and -6 JIC aluminum 90 degree fittings and the Earls hose separators. You can get plastic hose separators from McMaster Carr or just use zip ties.

On my 84 Chevy I actually had the complete Redneck Ram setup. This was back in 03 to 05. The setup worked great at first, but the ram ended up leaking and the factory pump was not up to the task.

West Texas Offroad updated the ram so I purchased that. I now have a PSC high output pump with the reservoir & cooler. Haven't put it in yet

If I could ever quit upgrading my Superduty I will finish this project

Had ORU do mine, small charge but truck down couple weeks with shipping. Wouldn't want to DIY. They also XRay to make sure your shaft has no hairline cracks.
