Re: Hydro assist help

The ram is AN8 fittings, and that's what you should use for the hose ends and the fittings into the box. I'm assuming the fittings going into the box would need to be 1/4" pipe thread, then AN8 for the hose connection. Be sure to use good quality hydraulic hose.

Re: Hydro assist help

I have 3' hoses on mine. They seem to be a good length with the ram mounted on the passenger side.
