Here's the thing about power steering.

We don't necessarily run PS to turn the wheel with one finger while sitting still. Probably the biggest reason we run it is there's no feed back through the steering wheel and the steering wheel won't get ripped out of my hands any more at speed. The Wicked Built setup definitely makes it easier to turn, there's no doubt about that but it's the right amount of assist because at 60mph a overly sensitive power steering setup will get you killed dodging trees if its not right. The steering doesn't get twitchy or darty with minimal steering input, in other words its not overly sensitive at speed, its very controllable. Cornering is much easier because you point it where you want it to go with no feedback of ruts, roots, rocks or anything in the way.
On the rocks or in the mud it is very helpful but you can't feel the steering resistance as well and I can foresee it wiping out factory tie rods left and right.

Overall in any condition it will reduce driver fatigue but I would heavily suggest having aftermarket front tie rods, which we have.

The Wicked Built setup is more than the other units on the market, it retails around $950 but that's not what we sell it for. We run the Wicked Built due to the quality, support and reliability and that's worth the extra $. In the race scene I've seen too many power steering systems fail and the one that had the least amount of problems was the Wicked Built systems.
