With the cost of new tires skyrocketing my opinion is to do the SAS and be done with it. A D44 solid front isn't any stronger than the TTB 44 as far as wheel joints and shafts are concerned, but the major benefit is the simplicity of the solid axle and its relatively easy set-up.

My ranger with the a 4" skyjacker TTB lift worn a half inch off the outside edge of my new LTB's (31x11.5-15) in less than 1000 miles. The lift was installed per the instructions, all new springs and ball joints were also installed and I had it aligned twice at a local tire shop and still had the tire wear issue.
That makes sense... and that sucks for your ranger
