You could, but you'd have the big funky crossmember in the way whenever you compressed the suspension like a solid axle truck. You'd need like 6-8 inches of spring lift and a fab a trac bar and standard steering. For the effort and money of building a crippled solid axle that way, you could just swap in a solid.

No it wouldn't be an SAS, it would be a welded TTB. And I wouldn't base drivetrain mod decisions on what you hear at the Deisel Stop.

Yup, most of the members at the drama stop would be hard pressed to venture off pavement with their trucks, let alone wheel them until their welded up TTB blew up in their face. They're too busy arguing over stupid BS.... LOL
