Full hydro steering is not street-legal.

You can tell the thing never gets driven... look at the surface rust all over the rotors!

hydro steering cliff notes:

uses a pump to push a rod inside that cylinder to extend the arms left or right. very useful on kralwers as when running big tires, turning them at slow speeds can be a daunting task with conventional steering, but with hydro you can push with the front quite well.

most states do not clearly list legality on approval of full hydro steering. hydro assist is less frowned upon because there is still a mechanical method of steering the vehicle if something with the hydro is not working correctly. thats where full hydro is iffy, as if you bust a line, you dont have much you can do to control it.

yes tires are 46s

No thanks. Too much lift ruins it for me. Plus you go into a turn and i think that thing would feel like it was going to roll.

I've seen axles made of drinking straws larger than what's under that 150. Talk about a couple of small pun'kins.

I swear, my best friend's little brother has larger axles under his plain jane 97 4x4 250 super doody.
