SAS EL PASO??

SO. recently my 79 f150 went up in smoke, leaving me with a rolling chassis
suspension survived more or less.

So being left with this plus a ranger, I was thinkin about goin with an SAS, which leads me to my question, does anyone know of a decent shop, with reasonable prices in the El Paso, TX area that could do this? I've been told around $5,000 to do it. This pretty normal? (also was gonna use the coil buckets) thanks for any input. (or if anyone on here could do it :] )
The Ranger in question:

My heart breaks for your truck. Dentsides are my favorite.

I don't know about any shops though.

I appreciate the empathy! And I DID find a shop, turns out 4 Wheel Center will cannibalize it for around $2,000*, the 79 chassis will go for scrap and the money from that goes to the shop for the conversion. I hate bein the one to murder a classic :[

Sucks about the truck man. That would be painful to watch. But hey, this leads to a new beginning of sorts!

I wouldn't let them part it out, it looks like there is still a few pieces on the truck that can be used. Sell that bed, fender (maybe both), bumpers. You would get more parting it out than a yard would give a second party. The door looks ok too but It only a pic.

It'll pretty much be mirroring the setup as it was on the 150, ranger goes in for surgery Wednesday then we'll see the result in about 2 weeks, pretty sure they are welding everything on

Yea, I was wanting to part it myself but I don't have a trailer, let alone a place to keep the body :\
