I have Offroadxdeign SAS kit in my 2000. They are a very reputable company. I also have DIY4X’s, and again very reputable company. I haven’t installed DIY’s kit yet, but like it lil more over ORD. They have different holes to adjust where the axle sits, or to accommodate different length springs. As for axles, getting to be slim pickings. Best is Ford, depending what you want. With 35s a Dana 44 will be fine. Need 78/79 Ford F-250, or 73-77 1/2 ton, but sill need to modify some stuff. Do you wanna stay 6 lug or 8? Goi g 6 is more involved. To run 35s, need roughly 6” of lift. The kits give 3”, so need a 4” lift spring. Many options out there for it all!! Here is my truck with stock front springs, and a 33” tire.

Hey, what about this kit: https://www.skysoffroaddesign.com/products/chevy-sas-sd for an 8 lug?

Says you can use Ford Dana 50/60 from 99-04. I think I'd be much more lucky finding something from 99-04 over something from 78/79? But 12" lift? That's way too much!

I really like how your truck looks. I think I could live with that if I could find an axle for my SAS...

I don't have any experience with Sky's kit, but it is a good kit. The kit will give you 6" to start, but you can drill the holes for a 3-4". If I didn't already have my kits, and 3 78/79 Hp 44s, I'd look into going with that kit or ORD. They make one for the newer axles as well. I used to be able to find Dana 60s all the time, even the holy grail 78/79 60s, but people caught on to the price of em and want your first born and both you nuts. For what i'm going, a 44 will be fine.

Do you have any additional photos or build thread of the SAS on the CCSB? I'm looking to SAS my 2500 ECLB and want to keep the truck as low as possible.

Thanks
