    Ya there were some awesome vehicles there, did you get any pictures of the Sheriiffs buggy? I just found out about the bbq because one of the guys I work with asked If i could bring his grill for him in my truck. They seem like some cool people. Next year I'll have to bring my samurai and see what it can do on the ramp.

    Yeah, I grabbed some pics of John's Sheriff Buggy. He's a volunteer Sheriff, so he build it all from scratch so he can use it. It's pretty slick. I always drool over it when I take a trip down to his shop.

    Daily driven SAS on built 60's with 40" tires. It can be done but you pay a price to do it right.:D

    I think you need lower gearing:p

    What do you have for up travel in the front?

    I didn't read this whole thread but don't really know why your getting slammed by a few, anyway I agree with you on alot of your post, you CAN save a shit load of money by doing yourself. But you really do have to be on your game as far as mech. ability goes (wrenching, welding etc;) & knowing what your looking for, I have no problem at all going to a wrecking yard for parts for a project, I'm getting ready to build my own leaf pack for the rear of my 2000 TRD which will be a mix of my stock springs in addition of some Ford springs for lift & strength (seeing how toyota really dropped the ball with the current setup) & I'm pretty sure I can "pretty them up" with a can of paint, hey if money wasn't an issue it'd be great to just drop it off at a reputable shop & pick up when done..just my $.02...;)


    Dude, relax man no need to insult, over $60,000 for an SAS !! who's the fool now, just sayin'....:cool:

    I'm no fool for doing and spending what I did on my truck. This taco is not just a Sas. It's a daily driver, can go across country and back without issue, can fly across the desert and can tackle some of the hardest rockcrawling trails there is and still cruise down the freeway at 80+. It has more than paid for itself and no fool would have built it. Just sayin' :cool:

    LOL. I can lift a front tire 48" off the ground before the rear tire comes off the ground.

    Jeebus, you need like an 8' hilift. I was curious what you had for up travel though, how much shaft you have showing(of the shock :eek:)

    Ooooo gotcha./

    Same deal with my cousin's Ranger. It's a DD and we've done 80+ and done road trips in it. It's covered tough trails and it may not ride like a BMW, but considering all the stuff on it, it rides a lot better than most would expect. Especially with having leaf springs in the front. :cool:

    I like how the Ranger turned out. Some well planned mods here and there make for a great package. You cousin did a great job.:cheers:

    Yeah, I use a 60" high lift and tie a ratchet strap to the axle if I have to lift it on the trail. I have it bump topped at an inch left. Don't want them to compress all the way.

    My cousin just planned out a lot of it. Hunter Offroad did most of the fab work for the SAS along with the custom front bumper.. Another shop did the gearing and lockers. And then another shop did the rear axle swap. The camper shell eventually will be coming off, and an exo-cage and custom high clearance tubed rear bumper will be going on and hydro assist steering. I gotta say, after all the visits to the shop, all the talk with John Hunter, and going through the list of parts, really helped me realize how much work a SAS is. The results are steller though, if done right. I remember going through your build at one point as well and was impressed by a lot of the fab work that went into yours. :cheers:

    I'm sorry man, I didn't mean to imply that your foolish for the investment, as I've told you before your truck is awesome, it was more to making the point that this guy didn't deserve to get slammed & insulted for wanting to SAS in a more economical manner (sounds better than cheap;))

    The "over $60,000" is the cost of the truck also isn't it ? (just assuming)

    No insult to you meant bro', apologies;)

    I'm not disagreeing with you there, but there's a difference between economical and dangerous. What he's describing is scary.
