Question Steering question

I have a simple question of which setup i should run on my Ford crawler. It has 42's and tons on it. Factory steering **** on the D60 now but that of course is going away. It is going to be fully hydraulic but im not sure if i should use a single or double ended ram. Im guessing the double ended is better because it seems to be on the higher priced kits and the badass crawlers i see. I know im going to have to dump a **** ton of money into the PSC bank account but im just not sure what i want to get yet. Will they both work the same?

I think the DE rams respond quicker.

They both work, mainly a preference thing. I don't care for the unevenness of a SE setup on full hydro. May be 3 turns lock to lock one way, but only 2 the other way. Basically steers faster one way than the other. That's the main reason I went DE. One thing I will say, is pay the $$ and buy a full kit, hydro steering is one of the few things that is cheaper to buy as a kit than it is to piece together.
