The biggest problem I found with the factory pump is 2 fold. One the fluid leaks out the cap on extreme angles. Two the flow is a little low. I removed the flow valve I think it's called and drilled mine out.

I also found that the fluid will leak out at “extreme” angles, but seems to have self-regulated how much fluid is in the system when it gets up to temp, etc

I may drill mine out like the West Texas write up outlines

you can also purchase an under drive pully to spin it faster at lower rpm, I run a blend of AW32 hyd. oil and power steering fluid on my hydro assist. factory pump has been fine for me for 3 years now.

Well last weekend @URE I bent my 1.5”x 0.25” wall DOM tie rod for the second time. So I ordered up a CavFab 1.5” solid stock tie rod and got that installed this morning > hopefully it’ll hold up!

Update: it’s still getting beat on. Haven’t done too much building on this other than a few little upgrades like Azzy’s t-case linkage, etc

Mainly just trying to consistently go wheeling these days!!
