SAS Conversions..Who does them?

I really would love to have an SAS conversion done on my truck, but in reality, I think the process is a little over my head. Does anyone know of someone in my area (PA) that does them for customers? What front axle is used for them in the Rangers? What would be a fair price for this kind of conversion?

Its all custom work. Any custom-type shop would do it for you so long as your willing to pay for it.

Fair price.. Couldn't answer such as I'm not experienced with such. I would assume with someone else doing the work.. a FAIR price with new parts.. about 5 grand.

Depends on how you want it done

if 5k in parts then 5k in labor.

Whatever the price of the parts just double it for labor.

D44 from a jeep wagoneer is the ideal front..but you can go all out run D60s from a superduty you can run D30 from jeeps..

but the ideal one that people shoot for is the D44 from an 80s model Jeep waggy

PA SUCKS...

Now that that is out of the way...

Tires can not stick past the fenders at all. Max fender flare width is 2".

Bottom of the bumper must be within 20" of the ground, from what I understand.

The bumper is an easy fix, just add a removable 2nd bumper at spec height. But the tires got to be under the truck......A buddy of mine got a nice fine for his 35's sticking out on his F-150. So no SAS in PA then right? They won't allow the tires to be under the truck?

you MIGHT be able to squeeze some tires under it if you get a jeep D30, or a D44 narrowed, but who knows im not the expert

with the proper backspacing and tire choice on a waggy d44 you can fit them under the truck. a waggy axle is just a tad bit wider then stock.

I was personally planning on cutting down a full width. It's all in how much you want to spend.

You can look for Jeep Cherokee's from early 90's to 99. Make sure they have the 4 cyl in them. That basically ensures that they have 4.10 gears in the housing. Oh, and they have a High Pinion Dana 30 up front..... WOO HOO
