The Rock Ram “Hydro Assist” steering system is the original hydraulic assisted steering system designed and developed for competition rock crawlers. The Rock Ram System will improve the off and on-road handling of any vehicle running larger than stock tires. When installed, this system increases your steering force 100% or more while retaining excellent handling characteristics for daily driving. The Ram cylinder serves as an added assist to the gearbox and transforms the steering stabilizer into a power assisted unit, eliminating the need for a conventional steering stabilizer. The Ram Cylinder uses dynamic hydraulic pressure to control the front end movement, not just cushion it, which results in an overall smoother ride and increased steering control.
The Rock Ram Steering System consists of competition and trail proven Super Ram Box, Rock Ram Super Pump, the Rock Ram Hydraulic Cylinder and install kit. The Super Ram Box has been machined, ported and fitted with a properly matched Rock Ram Valve to provide the needed increased fluid flow to supply both the Ram Box and the Ram cylinder.
The Rock Ram Gear Box is manufactured with light valving for turning ease. Gear ratios vary depending on the vehicle application. In additional to the tremendous increase in turning force, the Rock Ram System reduces stress on the steering gearbox and frame by sharing the load with the Rock Ram Cylinder. The components and modifications include the Rock Ram system are purpose designed to provide pure turning power for off-road maneuvering as well as stabilizing the front end for pavement driving.
Each Rock Ram Steering System Kit is application specific. Be sure to check the fitment criteria carefully to make sure your vehicle qualifies. Kits are separated by either "Rock Ram" or "Super Rock Ram", which is denoted with the part number ending in "T". Super Rock Ram Kits include an upgraded Super Thrust Pump, which is a reinforced, high flow, increased pressure rating pump that has roller thrust bearings in place of traditional bushing style bearings found in the standard Super Pump. Super Thrust Pumps are incredibly durable and are proven to withstand the most demanding heavy-duty situations.
Each Steering System Kit Includes:
- Rock Ram Cylinder
- Steering Gear Box
- Super Pump or Super Thrust Pump P/S Pump
- Install Kit
