To set up an solid axle truck, 79-85 is going to cost almost as doing a SAS.Originally posted by Pappy:

Did you read the "SAS Cost Myth" thread? I think when Opps said "set up" he meant beyond lift springs, lockers, and tires (putting words in his mouth though). Most guys with "set up" 85 and older trucks swap in later (and wider) rear axles and run crossover steering, which requires an IFS box. So now you have spent MORE than someone who puts an 85 axle under their IFS truck (not counting labor).Originally posted by beasttoyota4x4:
this i think is crap!
you already have the axle. put in new springs. lockers and tires, still a lot cheaper and easier and less time consuming!
