good choice, i would choose SAS over TTB any day, that is for the stuff i like to do, sure ttb is good for some stuff, but not what i wanna do.

300 is a heck of a price, what front axle are they using?

we havn't decided yet. $300 bucks isn't set, but depending on teh axle and if we put a locker in it it may go up, but that will be up to my wallet. probably a dana 44

There is no way $300 will cover everything, you are looking at about $1500 in parts alone, not locked, and possibly without gears (depends on junkyards and such in your area). If the shop does it all for under $2500, I will be shocked.

That is one reason I say go with a lift first, the cost. A good kit is around $6-800, but you could spend up to $1200 for a system, includes radius arms, either AALs or new packs for the rear, springs, sway bar end links, possibly brake lines (new ones will have to be made for a SAS = $$$), and a drop pitman arm. If you dont like it, you can sell it for most of your money back, but if you do, then you will be happy that you saved a bunch of money and time. Most trail rigs that arent SFA usually dont go SAS for a long while, if at all. For a ranger, TTB is strong enough and with softer springs, will work great (not saying you have to use Heep springs, but a 425 spring rate for coils under such a light truck is just wrong).

You will also want to look into a 98+ rear driveshaft to get rid of the carrier bearing.

ibet they can do it for a good price, if a company is trying to make a kit or get practice they will do it for nothing...

yes parts arent cheap but... im sure he will get a good price on it.
