      Military vehicles: heavily armored built to go through anything. IFS & IRS

      Trophy trucks: hitting dunes & whoopty whoops at 40+mph. IFS.

      I’m gonna go ahead and go with IFS. Solid works but it’s old tech and you’re ALWAYS gonna have the “older is better” people out there.

      IFS for flat out open speed desert running (pre-runner)
      Live solid axle for more extreme off roading. Slow crawling, mud running.
      The Ford TTB front axle is some what of mutant of the two. Not the greatest but it works ok. Not the best to lift.
      I have an '82 F150 and it goes fine for my purposes. With 4" lift, 4 speed, 4.11 gears, 33 inches tires, 300 I6 with 500cfm Edelbrock carb.

      IFS is for SUV. SFA is for Off road vehicles. I’m gonna raise my Jeep Liberty 4 inches and rock on. That’s all I need. I live in the suburbs. Hit the country on weekends.

      That Ford independent suspension takes a lot to get more travel and not much with 4x4. The Ford Twin Traction Beam TTB on the older trucks and my full size Bronco are great. Keep the stock inside mount up high and cut and turn the beams outside. With long chromoly radius arms heim jointed and tall shock towers you can get 18" of front wheel travel. Plate and gusset the beams and they are not breaking. With good shocks like Kings it is fast in control over whoops not spilling my drink.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIYPKwUbzNE

      The Ford TTB is the mutant of the two. It works fine off road. Can be hard on tires going down the highway. I own an '82 Ford F150.

      What, me worry?

      Turning radius? Wheel hop in snow & sand? Washboard roads? More parts to fail? My GMC Yukon with IFS rides like a Cadillac & off-roads great!

      I'm a huge fan of IFS when I'm doing high speed off road. Anything else, solid axle.

      Want a stronger one? A custom truck's solid axle with leaf springs. If that is not enough, use a tank.

      is it possible to convert Independent suspension to full solid axle?

      If your going to run a locker, go solid axle. Axle shafts are significantly stronger than cv shafts.

      Yes the engine bay is meant to crumble on modern cars, but the integrity of the occupant compartment is significantly stronger than it's ever been. Just because a car is old doesn't mean it's safer or stronger. Modern cars just don't make the front as strong as they make the occupant compartment.

      Live axle all the way. Newer live axles are actually decently comfortable.
