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

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
