    if you want close to stock width, go with Waggy 44s fron and rear. Different ways of doing the front. Can go SUA, use all the susp. stuff off the Jeep, or can go SOA, then you could use stock rears off an S-10 with an add-a-leaf or two, or stock type fronts off 73-91 4wds, but have to mount the rear spring hanger on the bottom of the frame. The longer springs can mount inside the frame, like the 88-up fullsize SASs. Pretty much havta go crossover, either to the pass knuckle or to the tierod, depends on how much lift....

    Go with D44's from a Wagoneer. They are by far the best way to go that I've heard of. Everything from the pitman arm down.
