    Is the jeep a daily driver? I've heard full hydro causes a bit of wandering at highway speeds.

    Depends on the system and how it is set up. Make sure the system is matched.

    If you plan on going full hydro you might to check the laws in your area if you plan on keeping it street legal. There may be a requirement for a mechanical linkage from the steering wheel all the way down.

    If I am not mistaken, you can do Hydro-assist, but not full hydraulic on the street in Missouri...the concern is that if you have a hose fail, you lose all steering.

    Thanks for the info, assist is what I want not full, Tghose links are good info, I'll check for partial kits or something else that'll work.

    PSC is rumored to make good stuff. x2 on hydro assist, i think its the law nation wide to have a mechanical link from the wheel to the tires
