      Okay, i did some house cleaning. Feel free to post your added suggestions here.

      We had too many darn stuck threads. IMHO when the first half of the forum page is stickies then they start to get ignored by the majority of the people. The general idea is clean everything up and get links to the data in one main SAS info thread.

      If a new project starts up that isnt covered above, or there is something out there that i missed, i have no problem adding it to the data posts. :)

      Is there a certain way or thing to look for while purchasing a dana 44. A guy is selling one for $250 with a custom truss

      Unless you're going to run links, I don't really see a need for a truss. Just weld the tubes to the center section and call it good.

      New to the SAS thing. (I have viewed the how to threads above) so I don't want to get the wrong thing.

      Thanks for the info!
