    there is no difference in the hubs. youll need everything from the backing plate to the drums.

    I got a kit off ebay had everything rotors pads, lines, hardware, brackets.. $240 +shipping i think it was.. It comes with front 3/4 ton calipers though so no e-brake. This was about 9 months ago but he may still be selling these kits, just search for 14 bolt.

    Here's what I have paid so far.

    $55 brackets
    $63 rotors
    $34 lugs(dual wheel lugs are longer)
    $24 rubber lines
    $34 callipers

    $210 Total :D

    I am going to replace the hard lines and buy a porportion valve.

    I didn't have to replace the lugs, but I did just incase I want to run other than steelies.

    BTW When did 11" drums come out, Mine were 13's?

    deont put nutin from autozone on yer rig that is made in china.yeait may say rayspetos on the box but its their econo line
    I grew up with the ol sayin "you get what ya pay for"cheaper isnt allways better.
    any gear head should know that drums are better than discs.untill someone figures out how to swap current year discs to early 14b housings Ill keep my drums.....or a late model 14b comes my way.
    Please dont get me wrong,discs are great but I not only wheel my rig I also work the hell out of it!!!hope to have some pics up soon

    I was not aware that a 14 full floater (10.5 inch) ever had 11's so do you have a 14 bolt semi floater (9.5 inch)??? in either case you will need to find the backing plates and brake shoe hardware, and drums from a 13 inch set up

    drums have better holding power, but thats where the advantages end. discs are more effecient during stopping, lighter, self cleaning, easier to maintain, etc.

    mr. "anything from autozone is junk" has been on the internet too long. my duralast rotors and fenco reman calipers work just fine, and im sure they'll last just as long as the crap that costs twice as much. theres nothing wrong with some stuff from autozone, likely - brake parts. when it comes to electronic sensors and stuff of that sort, yes, stay away from autozone.

    p.s. - you can put newer discs on older housings, you just have to run a 16"+ wheel. dont see why as they are really no different asside from having the ebrake drum in the middle of the rotor, and are pretty darn expensive.
