    I was planning on putting a locker in the front of my taco and I was just thinkin that it would be awesome to upgrade to sas at the same time, does anyone know a rough estimate of what kind of money it would take to do this and what axle/axles would be the best choice, thanks for the help

    that is a whole new world of suspension. you have to do all kinds of fabrication. there is not a complete kit anywhere as far as ive found, and it will ride like crap unless you put alot of money into it. I wouldnt recommend it unless your gonna go to at least 35's and you wheel really hard. There is alot more info on ttora.com i think there is a whole sub-section on sas'ing a rig. Most people use a dana44 out of a grand wagoneer. and if you go to ttora to look around be sure and look really good before you ask a question. Most people over there are not very nice.

    That's sort of what I thought, I wheel but not extremely hard and I drive my truck everyday so I think I just going to put a locker in my ifs, I thought it would be pretty cool but I didn't realize at first that it would be that much money and fabrication

    If you lock it in the front make sure its an ARB. (selectable). I saw a kit for an SAS online for $1500.00 not including the axle. Just do the work yourself.

    i dont think it would as expensive as the above people say it would be aslong as you dont go buy brand new parts. like get a dana 44 out of a salvaged car leafs are cheap and then it is just fab

    I had $8,300 in mine... that being said I did a lot of things that weren't a must (4.7's, .25 wall DOM front shaft, chromolly parts, etc...) I sold, traded and barganed my out of pocket down to $4,922. Save until you can do it right/the way you want it the first time. The extra parts really made the truck... with the 4.7's and everything my crawl ratio is 172.9. I can put it in 4wd low, leave the hubs unlocked, I can let off the brake and the rear tires will spin :D

    I daily drive mine on 33x12.50 MTR Kevlars and I love it... drives and handles like a dream and flex is niiiiiice :cool:

    I'm not trying to sound like a jerk but why would you spend all that time and money to just run a junkyard axle... if you going to do all that go ahead and do new bearings, seals, brakes, etc... yes it can be done for cheap, but just don't half-ass it :rolleyes:

    The extra time/money/parts will go a long ways.

    i have friends that have done sas to there tacomas/4runners and when they are done with what they do there is nothing toyota on it. but alot of them dont start with brand new dana 44 they are too expensive and a older one that has been rebuilt is just as good. now idk if you do this for a hobby and i am wrong but please tell me it sounds like you have done this maybe a job for a little bit? cause i can line up 10 tacomas that have been sas at the shop i am employed at. Also it looks like you had someone do yours for you is this true? dont know how to use a wrench?

    Watch out guys, we got a badass over here.

    his dick must be huge


    why is it that when it comes to SAS, everybody has friends that have done it for $50, and they themselves have done thousands of SFA swaps themselves?
    but I never see truck porn of these trucks :(

    A friend who modifies Toyotas and flips cars for a living did a SAS on a 1st gen Tacoma for a customer back in March. After all was said and done the price tag came out to around $8000. Let me show you why:

    http://www.trail-gear.com/tacoma-lift-kits

    Click on that. The customer chose the "SAS Kit C w/ARB. Below that, he also got the rear lift kit. He also boxed in the rest of his frame, and regeared the rear end to 5.29's.

    It was a lot of work. I even put the knuckles together (lol!). That's probably why he cashed in on around $2000 of labor after all expenses were paid.

    Shit doesnt come cheap if you wanna do it right.

    i guess the only reason i see stuff done cheap is because i am in the automative bussiness parts i would maybe have 2500 in it and that is "doing it right" and no labor charges i have professional welder friends one is licensed in the state as a welder. I guess i didnt factor in that some people dont know how to use a wrench lol so they have to have some one else do it for them.
