Ahhhh so if you can get the lengths right that would be the wiser move. Didn't consider the likelihood of leaks. Boy that's a big if though.

I used an old garden hose to kind of mock up and then had them made. Both of mine are the same length so I can call ahead if I bust one.

This^ if you go with crimped ends.

I think my post wasn't clear, actually I made all of mine with FS fittings, and for a diy'er it is a good way to go. My point is that the cost is a wash. But WHEN you end up replacing or repairing, if you have the FS fittings, you can do it when and where you are and all it costs is the hose. Leaks have never been an issue for me but I guess any fitting can leak.

i like cj's idea for mock up. and after realizing i got to run 4 lines now due to a pressure relief valve i'm leaning to the crimped. even if i go that way i just one hose and two FS ends to back up my whole system on the trail.

been short on time for the buggy but i'm still on it. got hoses made and hooked up tonight.
its a 12v pump going into a relief valve and then into the axle ram.

got to fab up a plate for the valve sit on next. i did buy me a new fancy welding hood. my daughter seems to like it too.

Image

not sure i feel safe with the hoses here. might have to run them on the left side of the pump

It makes for long hoses but it really is the most clean and secure way to route them. Besides the hose is the cheap part of a hydraulic hose assembly.

i think i might have goofed on the ram lines. i'll try over and down on the other side and see if i got enough slack. otherwise i might be buying new hoses again. crap :facepalm:
