There seems to be some sort of misconception about ride quality, and solid axle vehicles.
Make no mistake about it. Solid axles ride FINE.
LandCrusiers F250's F350's Dodge heavy duty trucks, and ALL 4x4 dodge rams before 2002ish Jeeps, XJ's Wranglers, TJ's and I am sure I am missing some others....
All have solid axles, and all ride wonderfully. If you think that when you put a solid axle in a vehicle, you reduce the drivability of said vehicle then you are dead wrong.
My truck has the most simple setup you can use for 4wd suspension, and it is very comfortable. I drive it daily back and forth to work 40 mile round trip with interstate, and highway and stop and go traffic.
There are so many advantages to a solid axle setup, and the only disadvantages are cost, and work involved. (which both will suck especially if you can't do it yourself)
