Buy a case or something. You do carry spare fluid don't you? Especially if it's something you can't find local

Nope, it's called "I'm a broke college kid and $6 for an extra bottle of fluid is a meal I won't be able to eat until my next pay check." Pretty pathetic that no one can give a straight answer for how man bottles a ram/hyrdo-assist set up holds. If I asked my John Deere dealer how many gallons of oil my tractor holds and he replied with "enough till it's full," I'd punch him square in the face. Guess I'll call Trail Gear in the morning and ask them and post it up so other poor souls like myself can find the answer.

If you a broke college kid why did you buy hydro assist? I'd hope your john deere dealer can tell you how much oil your tractor takes because it's stock. You have changed your system, increased the amount of fluid needed

For the record, the systems with ram and fluid cooler/radiator, will hold approximately 48oz.

@JasonYota - Simple answer: I love off roading. Some people in this world are actually willing to work for what they want. If I spring a leak on the trail, I can simply plug my ram outputs in a matter of minutes and limp back to the trailer.
