    I have a friend who wanted me to post this for him. He is a
    metal machinist who makes the backing plates and brake fittings for the 14 bolt ff. He charges only $165.00 for the
    plates and fittings. Calipers and rotors can be purchased at
    a parts store for under $175.00 making this kit the cheapest
    that I know of for less than $340.00 complete. The only thing is you cannot run an e-brake with this setup but everyone who runs one including me is very happy with them and could care less about the e-brake whoever is interested
    let me know. Thanks.
    Brian

    what rotors and calipers does it use. I have my rear axel torn apart and this could be a good ad on. what about the master cyl and brake valve?

    your right. I don't understand the jeep thing!

    He uses calipers and rotors from a mid 70's chevy 3/4 ton front end, although I don't think that there is a difference
    between 1/2 to and 3/4 ton calipers. As for the master cyinder and the valve, they stay the same. with these fittings you can use your existing brake lines

    Steve,
    I wish I had my own business. Sometimes it seems that way with all the parts that I Futz around with.
    I also will tell my friend who makes the conversion kit about advertising here on your site once I find out the specifics. Also if you are still interested in a 60 I might
    know of a new 4.56 unit in the crate coming availible in a
    month or less. Brian

    Once I get a few reviews done, I will start to look local first, the shipping is a killer.

    Why can't you run an e-brake? Won't the Caddy Eldo calipers work? Is this just the caliper brackets and bolts? Doesn't TSM sell their caliper brackets for less? Sorry for all the questions Brian but someone else I know is looking for disks on his 14. Thanks for the info.

    I wish I had all the answers but unfortunately I am just the
    messenger. My friend who makes the kit would be happy to answer all of your questions. Give him a call preferably evenings at 541-385-8419. His name is Clint. Hope this helps. Brian

    Thanks Brian. I'll let the guy thats looking for this setup the guys #. I looked in my TSM catalog and saw their brackets for $110. You still need to buy Ford rotors and GM calipers.

    Did you get my email and my address ok? What did you think of the gears and hubs?

    I haven't looked at the hubs yet but the gears and carrier are in great shape. Yes I got your e-mail and I am sorry for
    the delay. As the saying go's "THE CHECKS IN THE MAIL I PROMISE." Let me know when you get it. thanks. Brian

    <font color=blue>Do you all not need e-brakes to get inspections where you are at? I know that it is a requirement here. You must have some good friends!! - Steve :)</font color=blue>
