Think we are dropping into the 40's... but Brenton lives in Savannah, near/on the ocean, he is used to mild weather!

on the sas note, on a ranger, how reliable do you think this is?? i mean like doing some long distance driving and stuff like that, thats one of the things holding me back from doing it, i just dont want it to be only good for off roading once its done, i love to drive my truck everywhere and i want to keep it like that....

i would think its a lot more reliable if built right. A lot less moving parts, more simple suspension setup, and if anything did go wrong, its all right there, not much stuff to remove to get to the problem.

i had a lot of long distance driving on mine. i drove mine 7 hours to help jesse with his sas. and when i was going to college in daytona beach i drove home all the time and its 2 hours 1 way. my truck has been straight axled for a year now.
