    Is it possible? How would i mount the rotors? does someone make a caliper braket that would work for this? Would i just use som like 75 3/4ton front rotors and the same calipers? COULD i just get longer studs and slide the rotor on over the studs(meaning i wouldent have to pull the shafts to remove the rotors). Also the truck has rear antilock so how would i contend with that.Clue me in /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    I think I'd be looking at taking the setup off of a 2000+ 8 lug SF if I had an 8 lug 14SF.

    I'd check first to see that the axle "flange" for the brakes didn't change of course, but if it hasn't, that would be the slickest setup.
