DBR kit will be pretty kick *** on your truck! Sometimes I think of how much easier that would have been to do compared to a SAS. I know that I would get in way too much trouble with high speeds, dunes, and dirt roads.

Yeah it will work great off the sand as well. I just don't have the means for a big sasd ranger right now,but I still want to build one.

Haha Andy I know right.

The things that pushed me into this more that a sas right now:

Street legal way easier,being that fenders cover everything. I gota drive it around and show it off without getn pulled over every two seconds hah.

Also well within my means of fabn etc. Much less time and hackn my truck up. Id have to do what zack is doing and I'm not ready for it.

Use the tires I have already,which I save money to put towards other things in the build.

and I have always been hooked on desert trucks since I was little so this is getn close.

Yeah, I suppose I'll have to make a new thread when I start ripping things apart so this one can die.

I'm thinking I'll throw the explorer axle I have under it since its really not worth trying to sell. Load it with 4.88's and need to get another locker. I'd like to have the disc brakes mainly. Now I'll have to buy gears for the front axle, somthing I never thought I'd ever do on the ifs axle haha.

list of todo's:

-DBR front kit w/air bumps, maybe the fox shocks.

-Giant 64 packs for the rear or deaver f31's

-Cab cage and through to a bed cage.

-seats and harnesses

-fuel cell and battery relocation

-New bumpers and some low pro sliders of some sort.

-remove the bodylift

-make new tranny crossmember and tcase skid.

Sounds like tis gonna be bad-effin-***, Andizzle!

I still would LOOOOOOOVE to DBR mine WITH a superlift, ditch the bodylift, and run 37's. On paper, it should TOTALLY work.

Why not the new DBR cantilever kit and retain your bed space?

If I do the f31's, it would be temp. and do links later. But I might go with the Giant 64 kit and maybe even the link killer bypasses if I find enough spare change. That dbr rear kit is pretty sweet but I dont care about bedspace anymore and I'd rather spend the money on the giant kit.

Shane I'll keep you posted! oh and I see what you mean about it working..sounds scary tho haha. obviously it would just be a badass RCD kinda, since it would be a bit high for jumping etc.

Oh also, I will be getn rid of my bumpers so maybe somebody wants to buy them? not sure on shipping but I'd meet somewhere like the dunes trip if anyone going would want one.

thats an odd size to go with, why not 1-3/4? I really want to get a 1-3/4 die for the main cage bars but the about $300 price tage is holdn me back for now. Although I really do want a few, like a 1", 1-1/2, and 1-3/4

If I remember right when I was talking with a couple guys about cages, the 1 5/8" DOM was actually much cheaper then 1 3/4". So I decided to go with that die instead. Granted that was a year and a half ago so prices may have changed.

Yeah for sure. I'll be using 1.75 for all main bars and all of the cab cage. Then 1.5 for filler supports and 1" for bedside Supports, grab handles etc.

Yeah. Checked out prices over at Discount Steel and it appears that that 1 5/8" is just a hair cheaper then 1 3/4" stuff with the same wall thickness. Nothing drastic so my philosophy doesn't really apply, but oh well ($2-3 for a 20' stick). Maybe some day I'll pick up a 1 3/4" die after I make a cage or 2.
