Title: BIG brake kit!!!!
Post by: Cole on January 05, 2008, 09:44:23 PM
 :D  Just got the old drums off the 1 ton and converted it to rear discs. I should be able to slow down a house now!!! ???

I know.....you guys were expecting some fancy bright red aluminum stuff.  :P


Also just put a Detroit locker in the 14 bolt full floater. (for some of you this will make you drool, other will just be lost ;D)

Wow... look at the size of that thing... compared to the propane can I would say that has to be a 36" rotor!!!  ;D

Nice Cole..  How is the overall project of the trail truck going?

I'm lost, but still am impressed. :-[
How much does that damn rotor weigh?  Did you have to use a tranny jack to get that thing up there?  sheeesh

Built all new brake lines for it yesterday.

Jumped on the motorcyle to take the 1 mile trip to the store......and 40 miles later I was working on the truck again.  ;)


Another picture from the other side. Can anyone tell me what is missing from this axle? (other than the diff cover and brake lines?)

No disc on the other side?  No axle?  Going full floater in the rear?

Duh... It's missing a wheel. :)

No clue, but it looks impressive.

No axle? 


Correct. Just wanted to see who would remember it was a full float and the axle shaft is seperate from the rest. Figured you would see it .
