The particular ram in the how to is 2" bore with a 8" stroke. If you can find a a1.5" bore with an 8 stroke it will be more responsive in emegency situations.

How about a cheap 1.5 inch ram??

Paid 54 for my 2 inch, and would expect to pay less for an 1.5 inch ram

I thought that the 1.5x 8 ram would be cheaper too. All I could find price wise was 100.00 and up. That was for a welded cylinder Imho that welded cylinder wasn't made as well as the 2" ram I am currently using.

I'm using a 1.75" ram from West Texas Offroad. I felt like it was a good compromise between speed and strength. But with a modded powersteering pump, I can easily turn 44's @ 6lbs at idle while sitting still.

How is that ram speed wise? Since I do drive my vehicle on the street alot. (I know I need to fix the streetpart) In the snow I have found that if I get into a spin I can't counter steer as fast as I would like becase of interferance from the ram.

It's been plenty fast for me. I've done sand dunes, windy washes, and drove it on the street and it seemed fine. I haven't really done any emergency manuvers, so I don't know what to tell you there. I do like to really haul offroad sometimes, and it steers plenty fast at speed.

Matt (from WTO) said the 1.75 is the biggest he recommends for any street time.

That is good information I will probably switch rams before it snows.

As far as the feel-to me it is easier to steer and turn the tires. It is a softer but firmer feel-IF that makes sense!
