Holy crap now I know why people let 4x4 shops build their trucks!!
My BF and I both just (kinda) complete our Solid Sammy axle conversion. The trucks are lookin awesome. Now its time to buy the bloody expensive Rancho 9000's. We both went leaf springs in the front and inboarded on the frame. I am so glad that the stupid IFS crap is finally gone!!!!!!!! We had to do this all in a weekend. Anyone else on here been through the same thing?

91' Tracker w/31's warn 8000, roof rack, snorkel, and SAS coming very soon *Suzuki's continue to impress the non-beleivers*

NoLimit. Well let say bout 8200 frigin dollars!!

Im geting Toyota axels(rebuilt), new gears, stearing box, locker, and a lift he said 6" but Im calling today to ask him if I can get 10-12", going with a leaf suspension.

It seamed like a fair price since every one els gave me bout the same quote.

Its all on loan and its the most money Ive ever spent hope its worth it.

Damn, it sure is pricy. I'm sure that you will not be dissapointed with the Toy axle's though. I think that after all is said and done
my bf and I will be proud to say that our trucks were built personally by us ( we also know exactly what was done to the truck).
Be careful on how high your truck is, because when we were working on mine the truck was so tipsy (on jack stands) that it almost crushed me and fell onto one corner. Short wheel base= frigin' scary. Especially since the stock weight of a tracker is lighter than my old VW Jetta. LOL [:p]
By the way REO's old white tracker was sold for about 10G's, that would have been a great deal:)
