    maybe it was 2wd? and they put the 4x4 to it? honestly for 3 grand your not gonna come out with anything spectacular. I dont care if you can weld and have a pile of parts somewhere.

    Also make sure to swap out the proper muffler bearings or your truck will become a rattle trap that's one thing you don't wanna cheap out on.

    Well guys your are right on that part so i guess isnt wasnt quiet as hard but there was still a lot of modification to be done. it was a different straight axle from a different year that would put new gears in. the new one got a better turning radius than the stock one.

    not even close to the same, in tacos you modify the steering suspension and drive train and in some cases you need to modify thebody to fit the steering. an f250 sas and taco sas is apples to oranges and 3k just wont cut it

    please explain to me how my post confused you, and i will type the explanation in large letters so you can read it easier.

    he said he has swapped the axle under a F250 before. That already had a solid axle under it. So he is comparing swapping one axle out of the ford for another axle out of a ford, To all the cutting and fabrication of doing the sas on his tacoma.

    And i was being an ass about the blinker fluid since that one went over your head too.:)

    how do you flush the blinker fluid, is it between the engine & transmission pan? how do you fill it? is it that cap on top of the radiator?

    you can top it off in the tube to the passenger side of the engine. it should have a little stick in it with a yellow cap. but be sure to use dot 4 blinker fluid.:D

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    NO MORE THAN 3000?????????? I usually spend 1700 on my SAS, I've done 150 of them. Yeh RC cars are sweet TBH.

    A joke? How so, those ARE REAL PRICES AND REAL PARTS. There is no joke about that. Sorry that I built my d44 as strong as it gets. (except cryo ring gears $180 more, and drive flanges $300 more, + 30spline outers)

    I'm assuming you're still in high school, and you want to SAS your truck because billy who drives a gay fucking chevy is making fun of you saying your truck is a toy, oh boo hoo.
