It's not something you'll be doing over night or for cheap. But I mean if your truck already doesn't have a drivetrain and your wanting to make a trail rig, SAS would be the way to go.

If you search around here and get a good design and take your time and order the parts and have access to the tools then the actual SAS wont take long, probably a good week. Now getting the konks worked out is what takes a long time.

yeah its not my DD so i dont have to worry about it. its been sitting in my backyard to 2 years, it was going to be a v8 build up, but now im more into offroading. i hate my torsion bar set up on my 01 plus its my dd and i hate getting trails scars all over it especially bc i still owe money on it. my 1991 has an 8.8 in it already so i was thinking a D44 out of a waggy or early bronco bc it isnt a full width. leafs would seem to be the easiest but everyone is saying coils, ill have to check into it. if i do the d44 swap work the stock drivetrain out of a ranger still work, 4.0, tcase and trans?

Yea all of your stock stuff should work fine. Leafs are def. the easiest but coils are better all around. If it was just a trail **** then I would do leafs.
