Don't take more then 5 minutes to eat, 2 minutes to drink, and no more then 1 hour of sleep a day. You just might do a SAS in 10 days. LOL

Good luck bro. Keep us posted!!

An SAS in 10 days is not a big feat at all. It can be done and over with in a few days.

Keep in mind he has a TTB setup. Those D44's practically bolt right up.

78 is the year they went to full width. Are you going to run that and have the stock rear? Or is it a 77?

It will be like 6 inches wider each side depending on wheel offset and width of tires

Dude, that's awesome. When I was living with my grandparents, they went out of town for 5 weeks and toward the end of it I sent out an e-mail to a bunch of friends and family and told them I got bored while I was at the house by myself and sas'd it. Good luck and keep us updated.
