Sas best pricing

I'm wanting to do a sas on my 93 being 18 and kinda being a Pennie pincher I wanna get the lowest price. Is it easier to buy the kit from a vendor ? And swap in axles from 79-85. Planning to run 35's ARB front locker. 5.29 gears DD

So which vendors have lowest prices?

Where to buy gears and the axles

I'm running 33's with 4 inch suspension lift haven't got around to my bl

you're on a budget and plan on running an arb?

budget: piece the kit together yourself, source most of the parts from the junk yard, build a bastard-pack for your springs, make your own spring hanger, buy used

mediocre budget: buy springs, shock hoops, and spring hanger new. buy all else used

axle housings can be had for under $400, depending on condition, location, what's included, and seller's greed. any decent junkyard should have a good selection of parts for cheap. and online, take a look at the vendor's section; there are a lot of good sellers, and most of them are willing to help you out over the phone or email.

No such thing as a cheap SAS, or much less anything involved in this hobby.

You sound the same as I did when I was 18. Now I'm going on 26 and I still haven't done an SAS or a 3.4 swap or dual cases or any of the stuff I wanted to do.

This is a hobby for adults with well paying, established jobs and hopefully I'm about to get one.

I would caution you to stay out of debt and get through college without any loans if you plan to go, and build up a pile of cash.

Think most of the prices are pretty standard on the stuff, unless someone has a sale going on or something.

I've had good experience buying from Marlin Crawler.

Sell rig and buy one already built - it will be much cheaper since a seller will NEVER recoup their money when selling a built/semi-built rig. Or just drive your rig have now and go to school FIRST so you can learn to spell "penny" - then once you have a good paying job you can think about what you're willing to "pay to play". Sorry to be so blunt, but simply put: wheeling is an expensive hobby.

Agreed.

Wheel what you got. Buy your parts over the next year. Are you doing the work? The axle will need to be armored and gussetted. Are you building a drive shaft? Are you doing the gears? What about the rear axle?

Kits do make it a bit easier but irab88 said the cheapest way. TrailGear probably has the least expensive kits @ $1100 or so shipped.

Now that I said that, you will probably start hearing the TG VS Marlin VS AllPro.........
