Ok so, which would be better for primarily on road use? I do plan on doing a little mudding/offroading here and there but nothing too serious. I'm not gonna try to bury it in mud up to my hood or anything crazy like some of these guys...

if you are going to drive over 80% on road, then go with the SLA ('98+ suspensions)

Would that be hard to swap into a 1st gen?

it would be A LOT of work..... but you better just buy a wrecked truck with it already on it so you will have ALL the parts that you will need....and so you can take 1 part off and install it on the other truck.....

I figured as much. Ill stick with TTB for now. That way I can just pull the 4wd parts off another ttb ranger and throw em on mine. If I ever get the jones to do some serious customization then maybe ill try converting it to SLA.
