I'm reasonably sure that it cannot be done. I heard it from reliable sources, too. Seriously.

Im pretty sure your right. I heard some guy in vancouver came close but never finished it due to some mechanical issues, he ended up putting the ifs back on apparently :eat:

I read a write up about the offroad unlimited kit. looked pretty stright forward. depends on what front axle you want to run and transfer case preference. They have a kit for 2wd to 4wd also. if i ever come across a good deal i would give it a shot. just my 2 cents...

i've been slowly picking away at installing a ORU kit on my 95, its a very well built kit, I'd even say worth buying again. I usually build all my own junk but being this is my DD i didn't want any of the stupid headaches in fab'ing it myself (or having the time to do it twice when it falls apart)

The oru kit adds 2 1/2" of lift to the advertised time lift, IE I used 2 1/2" softride leafs for the front which totaled to 5". 2 1/2" springs are the MINIMAL you can use. With the 2 1/2" springs I still need to clearance the front x memeber. I probably don't have to but I plan on putting a plow on it someday so I want the clearance. Its a pretty straight forward kit, and instructions are well written, all parts are labeled ETC, even my drunk a$$ got it on the first time.

I can't upload pics off my computer anymore for stupid reason, but I have a couple pics of the truck as it sits know, 35" truxxus mt's on hummer h2 wheels, looks good not stupid tall or anything, I could email to ya if wanted

I did a small build thread over on
http://upjeeping.informe.com/project-ab ... dt257.html

Any questions feel free to ask.

i think peterson or off road mag just last month had a whole article on exactly what you are talking of. they thought a 78 or 79 ford leaf srung dana 44 is certainly the easiest. check it out.
