okay, well I was less than satisfied and after dealing with them on my XJ for 8 months I decided to sell the damn thing. Then got the LJ and thought one more try. No good same bad quality control and service problems I had before. Now, I truly think they have a great product but some the control issues stunk. I have a home built system now, designed by me and working great. it uses a modified 1985 K30 pump with Hydro assist and remote reservior, a remote reservior, a cooler and Ram. Had to custom a mount but it works great and, all the parts can be bought at local auto stores so no down time. I got all of it local.

Now what is your question about them and why are you looking at Hydro?

Yeah it is a good option. You need to think all those things out before you do a build like that Especially on a new Jeep. You would need hydro assist to keep safe on the road

If you are using the Vehicle mostly on the road, you go Hydro assist witha cylinder bore thats not more then 1.5 in , cooler, filther and a better Pump.KRC makes a great Pump for that and they are not too exspensive also the Valving can be changed to better suit your needs.
with Big Tires 40" and up and lot of Offroading you should go with full Hydro. It works great on or Off road., there is just a very slight resistance when you try to turn the Wheel very fast.
And It Is Street Leagal by the way..

Yep legal, not in all 50 but in Texas. The only thing, and this is from experience. i had failures on both. Both luckily on level ground. The full hydro was a very bad situation and the assist was still manageable. I would not recommend it for on off trail but for trail only. If I had the full hydro failure at an average speed of 45mph on the street I would be dead and proably someone else. The k30 pump runs about $30. it is a great upgrade only if you have a the room for a custom bracket.
