i have ben driving my truck every day for about a year. problems, yea stuff wears out mainly the seals. you have to replace those about 1 time a year, more if you have acculaters. the hose i replaced because it was rubbing and it wore the rubber down to the metal. just make sure everything is tight and charged and you shouldnt have a problem.

I've drivin mine daily for around 3 years or so and i've never had any major problems, other than the occasional wear of seals. I charge my batts about once every 2 weeks.

before i got my truck, the dude who owend it before me drove his 2 years with no problems.. occasionaly blowing a solenoid but thats to be expected with 48v and cheap $8 solenoids. When i got it, i was having a problem with ym switches, t hey would stick and keep blowing solenoids.. I spent.. probly.. not even $100 on stuff to fix it.. new solenoids, new switches, which i already had, and a new dump cartridge... and its working great now.

They can be very reliable. I run them eveyday. My truck is my DD. I have NEVER had a serious problem in the three years of driving. I suggest investing in a street charger, solinoid blocks, and good strong batteries. Also, the tripple o-ring cylinders from prohopper are AWESOME.

i had a juiced regal as a daily for a while it was ok, i would say invest
in a street charger they are worth every dollar, i didnt have but would
recomend accumilators for a better ride. my main problem was stopping
in the rain cause of the 13's and trunk full of 8 batteries and 3 pumps.
