I asked him once it was something on the order of 60k
Yup been patiently waiting for a while now.
He's done a bit more than just SAS though
My budget is 8k.......I think I hit it right on the head
Last I heard he was going rear steer....
Sounds doable and then some
Oh hell yeah!
I'm at 7k right now not counting the crawler, and have gathered up just about every thing down to the nickle and dime stuff.
$8k does sound doable. At the same time you may want to consider a trail rig like others have done here... 8k can by you a hell of a lot of fun!!!
And yeah, Wyatt has and continues to go nuts on that thing.
I estimated the 8K without the crawler and FJ case.
True.......but what fun is that??
Also that's why I have a 4 Runner for a DD...
Cool - Cool!
Kinda off track here but what exactly are the 4wd long travel options? I know all pro has one. Camburg? TC?
All poo, TC, and camburg are your only off the shelf option for 4x4lt.
Yes and yes.
Ok, so let me guess. TC is the favorite but it costs a shit ton more than the others, all pro is ok but most people would stay away from it, and camburg falls somewhere in the middle?
How close am I?
Doesn't engage have a kit that will retain 4x4? I know the have a super wide kit that won't
Close camburg on top they seem to have an overall better product than the others as for cost they are all within 2-300 dollars of eachother maybe a little more depending on the bells and whistles you want
Their site doesn't specify, but I would assume that it is a no as they claim 16" of travel and that is greater range of motion than a CV joint can handle at +4" wider per side. Not to mention their LCA design is a giant rock magnet.
I just read mjp2's LT info thread. It's a pretty good resource. He says All Pro is potentially best for crawlers because it only widens you 2" for tight trails whereas the others widen you 3.5".
Well TC also makes one that is just a +2", and would be my money over the all pro any day, however one really nice thing about the all pro that no one else does though is they push the axle forward about an inch and a half makeing it much easier to stuff larger tires (35"+) without getting into the firewall and body mount.
That's a nice feature. I can't even seem to keep my 33's from rubbing. Shit gets old after a while.
Yea no kidding try it with 35s, If i had the skills and knowledge I would try to fabricate my own stock length control arms to push the axle center line forward.
So all this talk about LT. Would a good LT kit, be similar in capability to SAS? I know a little more reasonable in price.
