What happened about the sas? I just shredded the front diff and stripped the splines on the drive shafts and was wondering if this was an option

how close in width would a jeep axle be? ive been trying to think of an axel that i could just slip under there with a set of leaf springs. skip all the 4 link stuff for now and keep it simple.

tubing was donated
tires were $500
all home-fab

replaced all the bearings, brakes, gears, oils...
built the driveshafts from pieces parts (kia, jeep & dodge)
& built all the links and mounts from scatch with Rubicon Express joints...

not hard. just takes time, patience and long hours of thinking, planning and looking at how everyone else has done it before the first cut is made.

Dude that is one cool Kia. I hope mine will get to that point someday. Is it street legal?
