800+ shipping, it will include everything for the front only

I don't think Koyn has wheeled it since he started having so much trouble with the CVs. Thats the point of the SAS, so he can wheel again haha.

looks good, just keep in mind that hacking of the stock crossmember will most likely be needed for your front driveshaft....

I know thats the whole pupose of the piece coming off the skid
I was going to just weld the center section of the stock tranny member to it and cut the sides off
but I desided to not to use the center section of the stock member and just make my own piece

here is a teaser shot I will show more in the next few days, Im about ready to weld it all togather

Koyn wasn't what I'd call 'easy' on his truck haha. I had that RCD on mine for a couple years and wheeled it pretty good with no trouble, Koyn got ahold of it and buh bye CVs lol.

I beat on my junk pretty hard, but im not the only person I have seen break them runing the rcd or the superlift kit

like I said not having limit straps seems to be part of most the failures I have seen

get you self a pair and you will be fine, it sucks to limit the travel
because there is not much there any way but you will keep from over extending the cv's that way
