Power Steering? Yay or Nay?

What do you guys think of the Power Steering Kit for the Teryx?

Anyone have any issues with them?

Thanks - Ryan

Been selling them since they came out and they have rare issues and I love it on my Rhino.

If I had kept my Teryx I would power steering on it, my mechanic bought mine and after driving my rhino he wants it bad!!

I think that if I would have had the power steering kit on my Teryx I would not have broke my hand when I hit a rock in the trail. the steering wheel jumped and spun and did not care one bit that my hand was resting inside of the steering wheel. Dislocated 2 finger snapped the birdie finger(the bone that you see in the top of your hand move when you move the finger up/down). Surgery, 4 screws, a titanium plate, and 3 months of therapy... Some day I hope to be able to afford power steering and I will, but until then I have learned to keep all hands and fingers only on the rim of the wheel.

Sorry to hear about your mishap with the rock 1Txn . Keeping your fingers out of the wheel in any offroad machine should be something everyone needs to know ahead of time.

I know to keep the hands out of the wheel(been 4 wheeling most of my life), I just got lazy in a section of the trail and was talking to my passenger and then all of a sudden the teryx found a rock at about 20 mph that just took us both by surprise.
