    Fury, the assist, the ram was 180, it's a PSC 8" travel ram, got it from my local 4x4 shop. The hoses were about 40-50 i think. I like it, i finally got all the air bled out, and i ran out of fluid lol. I got some more today but haven't topped it off. So far its steering fine, but not at the capacity that it could be.

    sweet jey, so your onto the tweaking level. have you gotten shock hoops yet?

    and you only paid 180 for the hydro assist?! for some reason i thought it was more.

    Well as it sits there is hardly any weight in the back, since half of the bed is gone. So the front flexes before the rear.

    When i get a chance, i'm headin up to my local 4by shop and flexin it on one of the racks, to really see what kind of travel i'm getting.

    The rear springs are actually alot softer than the front, there is just no weight to compress them.

    Gil - No hoops yet, work and christmas holiday's are preventing me from getting to mild2wild when they are open. I'm gonna use stock upper mounts in the rear and just throw some tabs onto the axle.

    I have the 3.0. Dunno what mileage, i'll be filling up tomorrow, so whenever that tank runs out I can tell ya.

    As for the horse crap, thats good old georgia clay mud, it was all in the backyard when I pulled it around.

    He doesn't have a front driveshaft yet = still 2wd so he can't feel the spool. ;)
