    Yep, no hardcore rockcrawling = no SAS.

    Unless of course you're bored and a have a gaping, bleeding money hole.

    Just to put things in perspective; coil overs will cost you roughly 1500 if you go that route. A decent 3" lift (front and rear) will cost you 3000 and that's just replacement parts. You can only imagine what custom one off parts will add up to. At your budget I'd recommend not doing a SAS unless you want it half sassed (assed) with a weak axle.

    you arent going to be able to do a SAS on leaf springs or on coils for 3k. no way no how. you might be able to get the parts for that much, but then you have to regear, buy new d-shafts shocks and stuff like that. if youre stickin with mud keep your IFS buy some mud terrains and regear to a higher ratio

    they are only being truthfull, sorry if the truth hurts. If you want nice parts on your SAS'd truck then the 3k your willing to spend will not cover like what everyone has already said. I know pretty nothing about SAS but I do know that truck parts are expensive. Even if you can weld there are still gonna be specialty items that your gonna need to buy

    People are just telling you how it is. Which axle are you planning on going with? If you do decide to do it then leaf sprung front will be your cheaper option.

    Just out of curiosity do know any suspension geometry?

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.

    Not negative just realistic if you try a SAS for 3000 it's not going to end well.
