Depends on your options. i'm making the switch pretty soon, and it will probably cost me 5-6k with new tires and wheels. and thats doing most or all the work myself. if you have fab skills(welding, cutting, a basic feel for mechanics of off road engineering, and you just pop in a early bronco d44 with 5 on 4.5 lug pattern, and use junkyard suspension components(springs, radius arms(or leaves) etc., you could probably do the swap for about 1k.

once you start factoring in deeper gears, bigger tires, alloy shafts/u-joints, lockers, lift coils or custom leaf springs, crossover steering or high steer, custom drag links and tie rods, the cost starts going up almost exponentially.

No before pics, but after a 2" massage here's how my 95 sits on pavement. I need to get some stuff pics, but it doesn't rub at all since I trimmed some of that plastic body kit away...

venom what size pro comps are those??

32x11.50x15. They rubbed just a little when I first put them on so I trimmed the inside of the plastic body thing and all is good to go now. Well except when I come down hard on them, but I kinda expected that.

hatched91: how do you like the body lift with the sas? does it feel real tippy in te corners or is it alright? i'm thinking about leaving my BL in because it is easier, but I dont want to make my truck proned to flopping over either. :roll:

oh yeah.. and NICE truck:thumbsup:
