Long travel SFA???

ok, some of you desert runner guys, what about doing a long travel SFA? from what i hear, the mid 60 to mid 70 bronco axles are the things to use, dana 44 front, 9in rear. would it be good to keep the coil spring fronts or go to leafs? this is just another crazy idea i had.... run 35s while playing in the mud and maybe lower bump stops, and run 33s when flying down the trails??? something like 14" of travel, would that be possible?

Re: Long travel SFA???

The Bronco conversion is what I am in the middle of right now, keeping the coils will give a better ride and excellent articulation, not to mention that changing the coils for different types of driving is very easy. I'm using progressive rate coils to try to gain the best of both worlds. I'll post some pics with 35" swampers when it is done.
