Depends a lot on what your going to do. If it's a show truck you can get away with a 30. If you want to beat on it, go with a 44.
And if 44's really are going to for $800 a pop in Ottawa, get a full size truck, drive down to a New York junkyard, rip about 10 of them out of some old Broncos/ F-150 and congratulations you just paid for you entire SAS project. I got my 44 and 9" for $220 and the guy cut them off the Bronco for me. (Note: that's my way of saying you should be able to find one pretty cheap in New York. Not really sure if that would entail any taxes or anything).
And Crunchy, he probably wouldn't want that Chevy 60. Then your looking at changing up the drivetrain as well as the Chevy 60 would have a passenger side pumpkin.
