It took 3 months for it to be drivable. Then another month working out the bugs (still not done yet). It drives nothing like any IFS truck. It takes a lot of time, work, research, and knowlede to complete this swap.

It will be a little easier to do, but still a lot of work.

Try this. Next time you have a question search the forums and the internet for an answer. So far everything you've asked can be found by searching other Ranger websites and Pirate4x4.com. Then you will have an answer and you can elaborate on that.

not putting anyone down.

you know once you SAS it, you will never be able to go back, you void every warranty, and many state laws are usually broken.

it is best to make sure that is what you really want.

i spent well over 5k on my first SAS, and that was to make it road worthy to my liking. I made it drive just about like a stock ranger.

You dont even want to know how much I have spent since then to make it more capable. The best bet in your case is to stick to a Lift kit at first.

ya, but if the questions have already been answered elsewhere, then thers no point of asking it again.

i myself am getting ready to do a sas.....and i have really not posted a single thread on asking about it...because 90percent of the info i need is in onther's build thread.....all i ask is questions about why certain things are done so i have more input on my own build..

and hell, i never thought i was gunna sas my truck, so ii used a superlift...
worked fine for me until i started trying to wheel it harder, so now that im ready, im movin on to a sas

like everyones said, its far more expensive and complicated than you think when you first want to do it.

I'm not saying you can't do it, hell when i first got a Ranger i wanted to SAS it, but had NO idea how, after a few years of reading and some school I was able to do it.

if you want to do it, research.. a LOT. if you still want to do it go for it.


as for your pre 98 question.. Sure, I would do that if you can afford another truck. its never a good idea to do such an extensive modification to your daily driver. ask me how i know.

Well i was out last night and these people showed me a place like 20 mins from my house that they all going wheeling at and they want me to come. they said there is mudd holes, rocks, hill etc. So ill be prob looking at either buying a bronco, ranger, expo, f150, or a jeep. mainly staying towards the fords though since every vehicle in my driveway is a ford. Plus last night while i was there they were all cracking on fords until they seen my truck with the hids and 4 150watt lights on the front on and with my t bars cranked with 33s. Now they all love it and want me to come wheeling with them.
