I have a pretty decent rig right now-- but I have a few TTB issues. (My front passenger axle is rubbing on the upper rear of the TTB "housing" amoung others) I have a buddy going to Iraq and he offered to sell me his project ranger. Dana 44 high pinion front- 8.8 rear - both full width. High steer, ARB Lockers, 5:13 gears, every bell and whistle-- it has no motor or tranny. I do some moderate wheeling, not a DD, but I do drive it to CO to do trails. I took it to Disney last weekend and did some harder stuff, but not radiacally extreme. Some of you wheeled with me @ krocks and know how I wheel (krocks is moderate) I have a stock 4.0, and 4:56 gears, M5OD, with stubbler and 33's. Probably go no bigger then 35' or 36's in the future. So whatcha all think? Is it worth it to upgrade to Dana 44 SAS on a first gen? (The rear would be about the same.) Those of you that did the swap was it worth it? Is there that much more flex? I am looking at quite a bit of $$$ for my budget so I wanted some input.
