#1 rule of an SAS

The objective is not to spend as little money as possible. Spending $1000 for a SAS is not winning. Sometimes less is more, but when it comes to a project like this, the competition should lean more towards quality than cost.

That is all

Thats right! And you may only get one chance should you compete with cheap as your objective, cheap will ALWAYS equal scary.

Anyway, point is do it right or risk your life and those around you, unless it never leaves your farm, but even then your risking the lives of innocent cows, chickens, and pigs

When i say Toyota, I mean built toyota, the axle has every upgrade available to get as much strength as possible, which is about at a stock Dana 60.

A d60 or 9" has more strength, and if i was running any bigger tires i would have to go that route. At that point i perfer an OX locker as its all mechanical, ARB have to much to em for my taste, unfortunatly with a 9", ARB is only selectable available, Wyatt will tell you I'm a puss, but I perfer 'simple minded'

In the rear 9" i run a detroit which works really well and makes for cool sounds while turning sharply at the mall.

That should be standard for ANY BUILD of any vehicle.

But - you know as much as I do, you see rigs that are slapped together 'on a budget' , they're ALWAYS the first ones to fall apart.

Yes, well at least any build that involves re-engineering the structural and mechanical characteristics.

And yes, there are some, "creative" experiments out there, Lol
