    Do you know if you have a quick link 1 or 2. Is there a cover on your motor and pump. I can't remember right now but I will look tomorrow.

    the setup when looking at the front of the truck is pump on the left, lift cylinder, solenoids.... there is no cover on the pump or lift cylinder just the solenoids...

    quick link>? they way it mounts to the truck is the older style setup, you know the one where it is a pain in the a$$ when its snowing and cold out to hook up!.. lol

    There are 4 bolts on the top of the ram. 3 are the same and 1 is different. The different one is a plug/filler cap. Remove that one and put in fluid. You want to make sure your ram is all the way down.
