Here's the deal...

Last night I was heading up to the mountains for just a little fun. Well when I went around this corner I noticed that the truck started feeling a little heavy like it was in 4wd, so I pull off the road try tinkering with the buttons and backing up 10ft the whole nine yards and no go. I then try driving it back home and the front end started making noise that got worse and worse, the truck eventually broke the drivers side hub & I think facked up the ring&pinion. So I'm thinking that I will either do a SAS swap with manual t-case OR get some 4.56 gears manual locking hubs and manual t-case for the same front end. Keep in mind that I have a brand new trail master lift on the ranger and that this is my DD

fix the truck, virtually no downtime, alot cheaper on your wallet, and easier(even though those TTB sas trucks are almost a full bolt in).

Sas's are badass... but a pain in the *** as well... Build a good dd then go all out on a trail rig.
