Well like I said earlier.... they seem to give conflicting information. They said Royal Purple only. So thats what I chose. To be honest, its not that crazy expensive... I think it was like 25 or 30 bucks to fill the system.... Box, cooler, pump, lines, resi, and ram. Lots of things to fill.

Very conflicting. In some of their printed literature it actually said to use Royal Purple. Then you get them on the phone and ask and they tell you otherwise. Hopefully there's no issues and we don't have to worry about it.

Beautiful build! It really came out nice. I have a few questions about the sensors. Did you have to put in any speed sensors in the front axle for the DAC or ABS.

My frustration stems not from the theory that we need to run synthetic fluid, but that so many people point to "the wrong fluid" when there is the slightest bit of problem. I stand by my suspicion that, as Jester reminded me, "clear fluid" should work just fine. If you are having cavitation, heating problems, then there simply is another problem.

I guess I could have gotten to the point. When companies like PSC tell us many different things, it makes my job A LOT HARDER!!!

Here is what happened and why people get conflicting reports.

At first PSC said to use Royal Purple for their systems. Printed it that way and thats what most of us did. Then after some time, someone found out that the clear fluid would work just fine, so because it is just a bit cheaper, PSC said it's fine to use it but did not change any of their printed stuff about using Royal Purple. Thats all.

Stuff out on the internet has been there since day one and when someone runs across it they take it as gospel. It's just that simple.

When people ask me about it, I tell them I run Royal Purple but the clear will work just fine. At that point the conversation is over.

Love this 4Runner. How did you guys mount the shrockworks bumper after the conversion. Did you have to hack up the stock brackets or did you fabricate new ones. I'm looking to mount my shrockworks bumper on my Tacoma so my bumper brackets are different than yours but I'm just looking for ideas. Pretty sure mine are going to have to be welded but in this picture it looks like you were still able to bolt the brackets on?

The v8 is gutless for a v8 IMO. The 4.0 v6 has more HP. Im gonna put the trd blower on it anyway. But thanks for your compliments.

Not to thread jack your shit Medic, but since it is still part of a discussion in your thread I figured I'd add to it

I recently installed my full hydro with a double ended ram on my D44 (Laugh all you want ) And decided to run Amsoil tractor hydraulic/transmission oil in the system. I am running a 12" heatsink with the system for cooling.



Bleeding the system took 25 minutes tops. Worked excellent when I tried it after it was bled.

After wheeling it this weekend for 3 days straight I was EXTREMELY impressed with the full hydro. I absolutely love it! (Ball joints don't ) It did get warm, when I touched the heatsink after a very difficult trail it was hot to the touch, but the fluid never boiled over. I am thinking maybe a 24" cooler instead of the 12". Maybe the 12" works fine, I am not too sure how hot it should get.

Awesome build (and a real clean one at that) and props for getting out and wheeling it too. I've wanted to do the same style 3 link set up for my front. Time and money and I ain't got either, someday.
