I have done it, but I used a ram from psc, all the other parts I got from tractor supply. I am in the process of installing a cooler this week and will be posting a write up on my forum shortly.

I also did the pump-mod on West Texas Offroads website, to get some more flow.

Its a pretty simple mod, but why do you need it? You shouldnt be having any problems with 33's.

our trails in our club are alot of tight turns and rocks which the hydro will greatly improve

gotcha, I would do the west texas pump mod, and see if that helps first, but if you are dead set on getting hydro assist I saw get one of the after market rams if you drive it on the street a lot. I have found that the tractor rams are kind of slower that what you are use to.

I'm building a dual purpose YJ with 37's. When does it start to make sense to incorporate a hydro assist? Is it strictly determined by tire size?

^ Yes and no. The larger the tire, the more strain on the factory power steering gear box and weak steering linkage. So the larger the tire, the hydro-assist removes a lot of stress on the steering system. Also, hydro-assist helps a lot in the rock to help keel the wheel where you want it rather than getting a lot of bump steer.
