Sounds like money well spent though man. You won't regret building the axle stronger. Now you'll want to put some 37's on that bitch!

As I've read on anyone else's SAS build page, always prepare to double the budget. I was prepared for it. Just tried to spend the money the best ways I could on this build

Waiting on parts is the hardest part of building.

I'm waiting on my new welding machine now.

I think he wants them sometime this decade, seriously. Nice product, but way, way too long of a lead time for something as simple as a bumper.

I know it is a lot of fun to build your own custom swap, but would it not have been cheaper to buy the full sas kit from all pro?

There kit isn't "cheap" and not exactly ideal either. Its basically the equivalent of a short arm kit for a jeep when you're done. Its the "old school" geometry basically.


Now-a-days when people swap, you run the longest links possibly (within reason) because the geometry works out much cleaner, with less pinion angle change as well.


the best option will always be a custom setup for the end user, however there are kits available for those who don't want to tackle the hurdles of a custom setup.

Some time in the unforseeable, distant future, i will be building my own custom plate bumper with the help of Chris, my fab guy. With him running, owning and servicing tow trucks as well as customer vehicles to repair, he is ridiculously busy this time of year. The only reason hes doing my truck during this season is because it is borderline unsafe to drive. Needs all 4 ball joints, 2 outer tie rods, rack and pinion is pretty well shot as well as the power steering pump. I've been adding fluid every other day for about a month now haha. Oh and to top it off the wheel bearings are shot and i shattered the drivers side front axle about 4 weeks ago. Lots of fun driving it seeing as its my only vehicle...-___-

TL;DR, Custom bumper in the future, and the AllPro will go on my dad's 03DC PreRunner.

The pile so far



This is how I will be running power to the rear winch and have it still be removable. 1/O power cable running to the back, and ground to the frame with these welding cable connectors. battery ground to frame as well, and a splitter right off the battery so both winches can be used.

Cheaper? yes. But my setup is gaining me a much stronger axle/diff front AND rear
