    i am putting a full-floater 14-bolt rear end in and am looking to change the drum to disc. a couple people have told me that all i need are calipers, rotors, brake pads, and the template, but i am wondering about the hub situation. i have a drum that i believe to contain the hub inside of it? it has a seal, and two bearings - are the seal and the two bearings the hub? if so, what do i need in addition to previous list to complete this transformation?any information i am most gracious for.

    For the disk install on a 14BFF you need:

    Brackets:

    Hoses:

    ....as well as rotors and calipers.

    When assembled, it will look similiar to this:

    The hub is the part that the wheel mounts to. The rotor mounts to the backside of the hub as you can see in the pics.

    There is a really good write up here.

    Good luck! :D

    thank you!

    i am still a newb to most of this, and i really appreciate the pictures (that is a damn good idea too). a good friend of mine has converted to the 4-wheeler brotheren and is giving up on the big trucks (had a nice rig too....). thus i am inhereting a dana 44 HD front end, and a 14-bolt rear. i am not familiar with the ins and the outs, and was concerned that i would b coming up short - parts and cash. a picture truly is worth a thousand words, and a thousand thank yous. happy wheeling!
