Reservoir Filter Kit

Trail-Gear 130565-1-K

When you have invested thousands of dollars into your full hydraulic steering system, you will want to protect it with the best reservoir and filter that you can get. That is why Trail-Gear has developed our new Rock Assault™ Reservoir. It is not only heavy duty, but also compact and user friendly. It features a full size hydraulic oil filter that will keep all the bad stuff out of your power steering pump and hydraulic ram.

Our Rock Assault™ Reservoir also comes with an internal baffle, features two internal magnets, and is completely sealed with top quality o-rings to prevent any fluid leakage. This reservoir also has a quick drain plug that is located at the bottom of the unit that will allow you to easily drain your system in minutes. Our unique fluid flow design is rated up to 15GPM and allows you to use your steering system while the truck is on its side or at other unusual angles that it might incur during rock crawling or desert racing.

Note; do not fill more than 1/2" above the internal baffle.

  • #10 JIC fitting compatible
  • Heavy duty
  • Easy change filter

Rock Assault™ Double Ended
Ram and Clevis Kits

Trail-Gear 130281-1-K to 130283-1-K

Through years of research, development, and testing we at Trail-Gear have developed our double ended ram to meet the tough demands of top level rock crawling competitors and the toughest trails in the world. Based on our experience we knew exactly what we wanted in a ram, and what we didn't.

Most rams on the market only have one rod seal. We started with the primary and secondary rod seal to insure that fluid leakage would never be an issue. We also included two wiper seals in our design to make sure that dirt and debris stay on the trail and don't get into your steering system. In addition, we designed our ram with a Triple Lip Piston Seal for consistent steering with no drift or fluid bypassing the piston.

In true Trail-Gear style we also had to make our ram the strongest on the market, so we added a feature that you will not see on any other ram on the market. We designed ours with a piston wear band and a rod bushing. The bushing allows the rod to absorb much higher side loads. We also machined our piston shaft out of a single piece of 4340 chromoly. Other rams on the market use a two-piece welded or threaded piston shaft that can fail under severe loads.

Our Double Ended Ram and Clevis Kits have a 6", 8", or 10" stroke x 2.25" bore x 1.125” rod. The cylinder has a black zinc-plate finish while the rod has 3/4x16 female threads on each end and is made entirely out of 4340 chromoly material.

The 6 inch ram and clevis kit has 6 total inches of travel and is perfect for Toyota's and narrowed Dana 44's.

The 8 inch ram and clevis kit has 8 total inches of travel and was made to work with Dana 44's and custom length Dana 60 applications.

The 10 inch ram and clevis kit has 10 total inches of travel and is used for buggies and comp rigs with up to 45 degree steering radius.

Kits includes:

  • (1) 6", 8", or 10" Double Ended Ram
  • (4) Cylinder Clamps
  • (2) Clevis Ends
  • (2) Clevis End Bolts
  • (2) Grade 8 Bolts
  • (4) Spacers

Orbital (Steering Control Valve)

Trail-Gear 130043-1-K to 130045-1-K

All of Trail-Gear’s orbitals (steering control valves) have a built in return-to-center function. This means that when the driver releases the wheel the tires will automatically return to the center position. This is a convenient feature that allows for slow rock crawling or driving at higher speeds. The amount of turns it takes to get from lock to lock will depend on what ram you combine with your orbital. We have included a chart that will tell you exactly how many turns it will take to get from lock to lock with the different orbital/ram combinations, with the recommended combinations in bold blue letters.
