Finally got it all workin! Must have just had a bad stock pump or somethin. I got the TG pump mounted using Dave'z offroad 3.0 pump bracket. For some reason my TG pump didnt come with mounting bolts so i used two M8x1.25x3" bolts with flange nuts. And one M8x1.25x1" bolt. That threaded into the pump housing. And two of the stock bolts. And made my own bracket to hold the TG res/filter kit.

Ya thanks man. I dunno what my problem was just lots of little set backs one after the other. But its workin good. the ram still goes the wrong way if its just hangin not bolted in and i turn the wheel. but when the truck is runnin it moves just right. So I aint gonna worry bout it.
 Just super stoked to go wheel some rocks with my ARB locked and see what happens!! :gap:

good deal man, great you got it done and workin!  how much did it cost? I know the OP said he did it for 100 bucks, but that was back in 2004! i'm sure prices have gone up since then

its still about the same price, I just ordered all my parts and the 8" ram, came out to $130 shipped, the 8" ram was a little more than the 6".

I read a good deal here and still havent found out about the tacoma 3rz pump, will it keep up with the ram? can it be modded like the older ones?

thanks

if you can pull the restrictor out and look at it and it has two little holes I dont think it will work. If it has one small hole I would go for it.
Also try referencing the part numbers from the 3.4 pump to the 3.0 pump if they are the same it will be to week.

i've read that the tacoma pumps have two small restrictor holes not one. i'm wondering if anyone has tried to mod these and if so how was it done? will a restrictor plate off a 22re pump fit ?

How do you think it'll run with it unmoddified?

I'm gonna be running a 1.5" ram,

got the box tapped and ready to go back on the truck, just want it to be drivable on the street.

It will still be driveable but with an unmodded pump it will be a bit laggy.

i'm driving on a non-moded pump, have never noticed it except for when i was driving down a dirt road that zig zagged back and forth real fast. even then, it really wasn't that bad.  i didn't mod mine because i read of a hand full of guys burning up their pumps or having a really noisy pump after moding it the correct way with the right size bit.  seems really hit and miss with moding the pump.

just bought all the parts i need but it just hit me i have a driver side drop diff so my ram needs to go on passenger side. Are these 36" lines going to be long enough to go on that side or should i return them. someone who has done this setup how much slack is left in your ram lines?

You should have plenty of slack.  My 3' lines are too long for the driver side ram.  I had to wire-tie them in several spots to keep them out of the way.

The 48" lines are only like $1.50 more, I would recomend running them if your going all the way to the pass side with the ram.


I just ram my rig for the first time with the hydro, and all I can say is WOW!

Ok thats what i figured so i ordered that same setup. i can save the 36" lines for spares so it works. how does the ram do with an unmodified pump?

I only really notice it when coming out of a U-turn and trying to spin the wheel back to center fast. yeah I'm sure a aftermarket pump would be even better, but untill I need it, the stock one will do.

I hear this style cooler is better than the normal tranny coolers used because of faster circulation, any buddy try both and have input.
