94 ranger SAS Q's

Hey guys ive bin watching on all the sas swap on this forum and i know i dont want to have 2wd on my truck any longer, so i have decided to go with a dana 30 with a coil set up from a jeep XJ from 96-97 and ive read that some people use FS bronco coils so im thinking ill use those if they'll work (and i dont know the correct name for them so ill just call them radius arms) and i will be making my own radius arms, rad arm mounts. and the steering set up will also be custom, not sure what size material i will use but i will figure that out when i get this sas going, and i have absolutly no clue what shock i will run and also i have just bought some BFG AT KO's 31X10.5X15 and i still want to use these when i have the sas on. so will this all work? i dont want a massive truck just tall enough for flex with the tires.
thanks- Dustin

Just swap ur front suspension to a 4wd ranger w a 4 inch suspension lift. 4wd ranger will have flex and benefits of SAS but not the large cost

ive thought about just putting the 4x4 ttb under there but i figured if i were to do the work why not do a sas, and sorry forgot to mention i already have a 4" suspention lift for it, is the any differences from the rough country 2wd and 4wd like is it more heavy duty or the same
thanks - Dustin

Probably because the IFS swap is 13 times easier and around 44 times cheaper, that's why.

Someone else more knowledgeable will probably add a better answer but I'm going to say 93-97 since that's the most like your vehicle.
