I was planning on running the spidertrax adapter and the PSC pump. However, I have come across a toy set up complete. I'd still need to buy the adpater kit and all. Just wondering what would be the better choise. With the PSC pump I was just going to run the kick box. Cost will be about the same either way.

I would run the yota. No real reason exept I think it would be stroger.

You might want to check with PSC. I was told the TC pump is too much pressure for a kick box? I was running the spidertrax bracket, pulley, and PSC pump, with a Toy IFS box. Now I am going full hydro. Jim

If i were you i would do it right the first time and run the spidertrax bracket and the psc pump. Yeah it is a little bit more money but it will pay for itself down the road.

I agree but not with the tracker gear box.

PSC is the BEST!

Several of us run their pumps with little problems.

SUPER company to do business with. Fast and fair prices for what they produce.

I broke a motor mount recently which lead to a dented and leaking pump housing. I took my old pump out there and they charged me $34 for a new housing and swapped it out with a new one and new O ring for free.

So what I'm hearing is I should by the toy stuff and the PSC stuff. Use the toy gear box and the PSC pump, etc. That's not a bad option I suppose. I'm sure my wife won't agree though! haha.

Thanks for the comments.

You dont have to use the toy gear box. There are other cheaper options, like the chevy S-10 box( $30 buck from Pick and Pull). that is what I use and it slings around the 35" tars I got like a red headed step child.:mrgreen:

So a Toy box at a pick and pull is more expensive? I thought they were all the same price?...LOL

At the pick and pull around me. It doesnt matter what rig you get the parts from, thay have set prices on parts. So no differance on price of chevy or toy gear.
I would use the Toyota IFS 4x4 steering gear, Not the 2wd gear. The 2wd gear is alot smaller and most likly no better than the sidekick gear.
Also there is alot more aftermarket support for the toyota pitman arms, over the Chevy.
Psc pumps are bad ass I have one, It works perfict.

It is a strong gear box. Here is a comparison with a stock steering box.

I have a locked front with 35" tires and I have no problem turning them. I have a buddy that turns 38.5" tires on locked Dana axles without any problem either. I dont see a sidekick gear box doing that.

The boxes might cost the same but the total install is cheaper. It is cheaper cause you can use the stock pitman arm without any modifications, it will receive the stock sami rod end. It stays inside the frame rail so it is easier to install without have to get a longer drag link.

I installed it all for less than $100. Is that cheap enough?

And yes, there is aftermarket support for these boxes where you can add hydro asist if needed.

I was just giving him an option. 2finger

It'll probably be a long while before I get around to changing my steering stuff, but you've raised my curiosity...

Well, I bought the toy set up. I will probably swap out the stock pump and all for the PSC pump and just run the IFS box.
