If you have torsion bar suspension you can always do t-bar cranks.. My buddy did coil spacers and rear blocks. maybe try here http://www.4wheelparts.com/

Super lift sells a kit, and it is 10x the cost of a body lift

If your not on a budget, try 4 wheel parts, or car stuff.com. If you are on a budget, go on craigs list, and just be patient. Something will come along

A super lift would cost almost as much as a d30 sas...personally if I was gonna pay $1500 for a lift I'd go ahead and sas it.

Superlift suspension lift: $1,777.05
Superlift driveshaft: 465.63
Total $2242.68


$2242.68/159.95(cost of body lift)= 14.02

you'd be paying 14 times a body lift for a superlift with the driveshaft. not worth it at all. You'll still have the torsion bars hanging down with a superlift just as you would with a body lift and fit the same size tires.

you could go with a coilover swap with both, with a superlift and coilover swap you'll probably be around $3500 then add wheels and tires, the parts would probably end up being close to if not the entire value of the truck lol

Well if you body lift instead of suspension is it going to really look different?

Your an idiot if you think you can sas for less than $2000... Either do a body lift, torsion bar crank and shackles or spend the money on a superlift and ypu could always do coilover swap like mwntioned above. Unless you plan to wheel your rig hard then dont waste time on a sas cuz if you want to do a good job it will costmuch more than $2000

Its not going to look that much different. In my opinion you can see the torsion bars more on a superlifted truck.

not really aside the frame not being moved up. if your frame is black(paint, undercoating, whatever) you won't really notice it. mine is undercoated and you can't really see it that much

When everything adds up, no. Sure you can, if you own the tools and knowledge, get a D30 for pretty cheap and hook it up. But you need a custom dshaft usually, knowledge of angles for making ****, parts for setting up steering(plus yota steering box i think), probably some replacement parts. You should regear which'll really help axle. Costs just add up man...to build a GOOD rig it takes a little dollar.

But I do believe if you could do all the work yourself, you could get a setup that's very nice for 2000$.

Yeah if he can do it himself he could get a nice setup for around $2000...and assuming he takes his truck offroad (his username is mudranger18) it would do alot better and lockers, gears, and other stuff is way easier to come by with the d30 vs a rangers d35.

I would vote for not being able to SAS for under $2k. I have yet to see one and I have seen a lot of builds.
