how crazy of a weekend wheeler do you want? user on here Pietro has a very thorough (spelling?) build thread, search his name threads he has started. it is very nice as far as what it takes to get a 2wd toy into wheeling shape, it is also on small (31 or 33?) tires and looks very factory at ride height.

also, it depends on what you consider weekend wheeling. link suspension can be very good for daily driving, leaf springs are a bit cheaper, depending on what you have to play with and what skills you possess
