    I've heard of them before, I'm pretty sure they have a good reputation. TTORA will have more people that have experience with them.

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    Are you in the market for doing a SAS? Sky manufacturing is good. However it's just like trailgear... It's just a basic starter kit to help you get going. Check out my sticky at the top of this section and do some reading about SAS. Any questions and I'm more than happy to help answer them.

    Slowly but surely i'll get it done i'm in no hurry as I'm getting the engine working properly at the moment. Fuel tank issues. I have a very nice and clean 1990 3.slow IFS, pretty much stock at the moment. I've been learning and collecting parts, mostly learning. I have a 1982 Toy front axle with stock 4.10 gears to match my ratio. When I came across the sky kit I was searching for some stock leafs. I won't likely buy a kit but piece it together. I'm sure I'll contact you in the future.

    If you want the best kit for your needs build it your self. It tends to be cheaper also but not always the case. Sky is a good company but so is a lot of other company out there like: Front Range Offroad, All Pro, Trail Gear for kits. If you want to build it yourself go to ruff stuff and ballistic fab and make it what you want.
