Ok first even a kit this is not a bolt in swap
2 if you're going to even think of 38s a 44wont live
That thing is twice as heavy as your jeep
and the you will pack ten times the stuff in it
Springs are Chevy front leafs
On the suburban the ford steering would have worked
if it wasn't stupid tall
Hi steer would be nice and cheeper on a kp 60 to do
Now think this way build it once the way you need it
It's cheaper than building it two or three times
Do you need 38s on a dd fsr cruiser camping rig not really
Bigger tire less milage harder on parts
And you do drive in town mostly so less Heaty is good

if your gonna do a straight axle swap, dont waste your time with a 44, thats all i have to say.

And there's lots of little stuff matching up gears you want 4:10 min
For 35 to36 tire or you will burn up that auto trans

The diff in cash isn't much if you price it out
And the ranger I just did the 44 swap in has since broke both axles
Lighter truck and less power and he did it in the snow

Yea don't think so either hard to tell someone what he needs if you don't know what he's got
Was thinking if it was radius arms just add coil mounts and some f 150 coils

IF he has a 78/79 F150 standard cab or bronco D44, get rid of it.

if its a 78/79 F150 extra cab D44.. good to go
