1; I sold my photography at a trade show for 10 years and the people that were nicer did a little better but they usually have the worst products. I'm not going to pay extra for a smile, I can get that at the grocery store.

2; I will agree with that but they usually get carried away with their prices eventually.

3; That's not true at all. Nobody is going to keep buying garbage.

Happy with Red-Head

I just installed a Red-Head box in my 05.

1. It never drove this good new.
2. Service was top notch. Delivered fast and core credited promptly.

I will pay a little extra for quality and good service. These things are rare now days.

I'm really not getting into this arguement, per se. I can tell you that over in the 99 to 03 7.3 diesel forum, Red Head steering has a stellar reputation for being a superior product compared to the original. And incidentally, I purchased mine based on that, as I didn't talk to the fellow everyone seems to be talking about.

if you provide your own steering box, you do save the core charge but the oru kit without the box is still just a tad over $1000. you will need to send your new box into oru so that they may have two additional ports machined into the box for the ram. they charge around 300 for the machining plus the additional shipping cost to get the box to them.

edit: just to be clear, the machining cost is included in that 1k for the kit.

You might be an engineer if ... the first thing you do with anything new is take it apart to figure out how it works.

Well got time, this weekend to change out the gearbox. I was a bit worried at first, but after getting on the road. It's like having a new truck. Before I slowed down on corners, felt like truck was going to grab and roll over. Now, just goes into the corners and stays steady. No more wondering.

Thanks all guys.
