    Dude, it's not going to go for anything less than $800.
    Spend your money elsewhere - that's not worth it.

    Too narrow anyway. Go the cheap route. Do a search for not only 12 bolt, but also 10 bolt, there's a lot of good info on here.

    45acp is coming out with 10/12 bolt disc kits for $185...Grimmy and Robzilla are testing a few sets right now.

    Send Bill a pm, or better yet check his pic's in the members gallery. He has a series of pic's of the 10/12 kit there.

    Yes, I did put the kit on my truck from Bill @ A-Tron.

    Let me tell you it was a breeze to install and there were no issues with the installation.

    His kit was simple and easy and worth the money.

    I did however, have to remove the stock proportioning valve from my 1st Gen, as it would not work correctly with the rear discs.

    I will try to take some pictures of the install this week and post. It was very straight forward and simple.

    If you have any questions, drop me a PM.

    see if this will work, I'm putting those caliper on my 14 bolt right now and will do the same to the 12 bolt that I take off to get the set up down.
