Not sure what sano means?

The arms mount to the axle with 3/16" plate and then more 3/16 for gussets which tie in underneath. On the previous page, you can see the front mounts a little better.

A SAS is not too much work, its too much money. The axle you see in a HP FJ80. Looking at 700 for the high steer, 700 for axles, several hundred in new seals and hardware/brakes, plus the cost of linked front, which would likely go with coilovers, plus new gears all around, and another locker. It'll happen, but later on.

I didn't realize how big of a deal it was to see you driving your truck the other day!

Yeah, it was a pretty big deal. I was stoked about it.
