Post your home-made sas brackets!!!!

Okay guys post some pics here. I just looked at the Off-Road Direct sas kit...$599 and that doesn't even include springs! I know I can do just as good, but I need some ideas. This is going to be a dd / mud / do all truck, so no sheetmetal spring hangers here. I also want to get a fair amount of lift out of the hangers themselves. Anybody ever see the ones on the front of Stacey David's "Seargant Rock" on the t.v. show Gearz? I know those would kill approach angles and probably scrub, but I love overkill! I am SASing a 98 fullsize and putting in Rockwells and 49" tires. I appreciate any ideas or advice from you all!

Nice! That's what I had in mind. Big, hefty tube, and some gussets to boot!

You asked for SAS brackets

I do have to give credit to Ruffstuff for the formed brackets I modified and incorporated.

I like that last one. I was thinking of incorporating a winch mount into my front crossmember/spring hanger too.

Here is a cross member I had made for my 03 Dakota.....I still need to fab the spring hangers.


I just noticed (damnit) that I can't remove the bodylift now with it welded in place after the sas swap.

Here's the first pics...none of my brackets. According to our measurements, we're going to have to move the point where the spring attaches to the frame down 10 inches and run a 6 inch block on top of the axle. That will make enough room for stock springs and 52" tires at the same time. Flame on!

those jack stands are pretty, but why stock springs, trying to keep some flex?

Why not just run 16 inch blocks?

Here's the setup I used to have. It gave me 6" of lift from the hangers.

I still have these barckets if anybody wants 'em.

sky manufacturing has a fairly inexpensive s.a.s. kit that will allow a shit-ton of lift (i think like 6" or so built into the hanger)... might be worth checking out if you wanted to go that route

No. I got it from JC whitney years ago.

When I was still driving it on the street, I was looking for any way to keep tranny temps down.
