To do a SAS-
You need the 4wd tranny and t-case or a 2wd tranny and a divorced t-case
you need to decide if you want coils, coil over, or leafs (leafs and the cheapest)
You need a front axle- jeep 35, or 44 Waggy 44. or take a fullsize 44 and have it chopped, or use the front and rear out of a fullsize and put in yours.
You also need to rebuild the axle with the proper gears front and back.
ummm thats the basics also your going to have to come up with a cross over drag link steering system. Also read and research

the jeep is not a 35 as was posted above its a Dana 30 or a 44 waggy 44 is the wrong bold pattern. you can get a early bronco dana 44 that will work but they are drum brakes. you don't have a huge motor in that truck i would get a Dana 30 out of that YJ (i am assuming you meant? no JY) If so YJ's are leaf sprung in the front so you need to get some shackles too. jeep lift leafs would work in the front or you could get the leafs out of a fullsize chevy blazer or something along those lines.

yeah I just re read what I wrote I ment 30 not a 35 Idk what I was thinking that day 35 is a rear axle. The waggy 44 would work if he wasnt worried about the pattern I was throwing width option out there.
