Rear steer questions

What are my choices for rear steer? Whats the best? Elec/Hydro? where do you get them? Can i run a seperate PS pump and run some really long hydro lines? I plan on doing this as soon as i can find a steer axle.....

12v haldex pump is easiest and cheapest way out. You can do a pump driven system but the rear steer control valve, elec toggle, new pump,orbital ect.. is BIG $$$

I run a one way haldex pump with a front end loader valve and a switch on the valve knob and works pretty good. You can try with a seperate ps pump and just the loader valve and see if it works. I tried both off of one pump and it would not work.
part #103980 Cross converta valve from tractor supply around $100. If you try this way let me know if it works might be a way to save big money in the future.

I run the Haldex pump from Northern Tool and it doesn't like the mud,water and bumps. Cost me $500.00 and is unreliable.

When I talked to Scott at Rockstomper about building a rear steer he told me on their comp buggy they run the pressure line from the pump to the rear valve first. Said he just uses a spring to center log splitter valve like you get at Northeren tool 70 bucks. Then from there he runs the return into the orital pressure port. That simple. I asked if the orbital would work at the same time that you are using the rear steer and he said no that the rear steer would take priority but that he has not run into situations where he needed the front at the same time he was turning the rear and it was not a problem.

Glad to have you over on the forum
Your rear steer seemed to work great. The haldex pump will be my choice.
I was supposed to go meet a guy to get my steer rockwell saturday, but he is unable to meet me now. hopefully i can work something out with him on getting it soon.....

ANd run a second battier to. I waited when guy would run there battery down with there rear steer and stuff there truck ecm's off. Or not know they drained there battery down to the point it wouldnt turn the motor over.

On small comp rigs you ran run the second port pump set up. But we run to big of rams and move to much weight. Plus ive had buds that limped there rig off the trail with rear eletric hydro steer. When they lost the front pump.
