  • JK-Adventure.com How To: Install the Redneck Ram Hydro Steering Assist Kit



    This is part 2 in the series. The first video covered the installation of the Synergy JK Weld-on Track Bar Bracket and Drag-Link Flip Kit in preparation for the install of the Redneck Ram Hydraulic Steering Assist kit.

    Now that the Jeep was ready for the hydro assist kit, it was time to finally install it. The kit had been sitting in my garage for only about 6 months while I decided on the direction I wanted to take (really long I know!). The install was very straight forward and can be done quickly with common hand tools, a jack and some jack stands. According to Matt, the owner of West Texas Off Road, I didn't need a fluid cooler, but I always like to play it safe. Of course, this caused mayhem as the luid leaked like crazy around the hose-clamped hoses on either side of the cooler. I had to remove the hoses and take them to a hose shop and have them custom built with hydraulic fittings which were installed on both sides of the cooler instead of the barbed fittings which came with the cooler. Everything seems to be working very well at this point.

    Stay tuned as I use this kit more and post the details as to how it holds up.

      What's the name of that tool you used to remove the steering box from the frame? That's really cool looking!
