    Thank you very much sir.

    I've got probably between 4500-5000 in everything needed from tires to gears to parts and then the labor charged by Cory.

    Yea. My whole SAS with a Dana 60 and Dana 44 front is cost me around 7k with wheels and tires. That is including: axles, chromolly shafts front and rear, longfield joints, leafs for the front, 4 shackes, shock f&r, steering, rear disc brakes, perches, clear gearz diff. cover, drive shafts f&r, hi-steer, spool in rear, labor and other stuff but thats most of it.

    Yea its exspensive but worth it. I just really like how clean Josh's is. For people who haven't seen it, it is remarkable. I really love and hope I can make mine look as clean when finished.

    Josh, What coils are those? I just )And I mean just as in like 4 hours ago.) got my sas done and its on super lift 5.5 coils. They are stiffer than I want. perhaps we can work some kind of trade? they now have something around 120 miles on them because I drove the tuck home.

    The coils are for a cherokee. They are soft, really soft which makes it nice wheelin on rocks. They've been cut to make it fit right for the lift, so i don't know if you could even use them. All he did was just come down a coil or two and cut it, so the top of the coil is just as wide as the whole thing, know what i mean?

    You wouldn't happen to know what racing magazine he got those coil buckets out of do you?

    Also how is the d30 holding up to 35s?

    No I don't have a clue what magazine it was. But dude trust me you don't want them. I'm working on an idea to make my own anyways, so i can get rid of these!

    D30 is holding up really well. I don't get on it really hard, just because i have never wheeled like that. I did bust one u joint a couple years ago, but i've been to tellico twice and to a park in KY and i've never had a problem with the toughnes. I've broke about everything else though, lol.

    was this meant for me? If so then nothing, at the time Cory had these it looked like a good idea until the paint rubbed off, lol.

    I'll end up with the buckets you mentioned or make my own.

    the y style steering is going to cause problems when the suspension cycles. you should switch to a deicated tie rod with a shorter draglink that hooks in to the tierod instead of the tierod into draglink or move to a high steer/ cross over steering setup.
