HOT DAMN! if i didnt already have a lift i would get that one, with about 9" of lift. that straight axle would be very sweet. since i dont know much about the lift, and have not heard anything about it, i really cant reccomend it to you, maybe someone else knows something?
here's some video of his bronco in action. Pretty damn impressive!

any custom job is gonna cost you alot of money. If you can't do it yourself or don't know a good friend to do it for you then I would buy the kit. Sometimes you can find a straight D44 hub to hub for between $200-400 at junk yards.
I forget the exact stats of the while bronco but check out their webpage
they're a good group of guys and are very knowledgeble.
Also try http://www.mybigbronco.com There's a guy there that did the fabritech conversion. I don't know if he did a write up but you can search the forums for it.
Since you say you're fairly new to the 4x4 world. I'd recommend that you go on a few wheeling trips. See what your rig can do with it's origional set up. And if you like it then keep it and put the money into making it stronger. Also see how other 4x4's perform and what kind of set up they have with the type of wheeling you do. IFS is good for some stuff and solid axle for others.
But if you're finding that you need more flex, then look into an SAS. no sense in spending all that time and money into something that you don't really need.
Its real easy just find yourself a dana 44 from a 78-79 f-150/bronco hub to hub and radius arms with brackets its all bolt in for the most part, a monkey could almost do it by himself. if you want some real sick flex check out the custom radius arms at http://www.gis.net/~fordboys/product.html these things are kick a**
Hey that white bronco looks familar. Oh wait it is mine. The hardest part with doing the SAS is finding a good way to mount the track bar.
We did the SAS (solid Axle Swap) in 3 days. Could have done it in 2 but we took our time.
