    If you are going to put disc brakes on your 14 bolt, I can only recommend one place: Black Widow Performance. Shane's products are excellent. His kits are complete, price competitive and the tech/customer support you get from him is parallel to none in that field. If you're going to do it, do it right. Black Widow Performance.

    My friend had to order three sets of those brackets to get ones that worked. The bend wasn't the problem, the holes for the caliper bolts weren't square enough to get the bolt for the caliper to pass through.

    I installed the RuffStuff brackets and had no problems at all, fast shipping and got em for 45.00. they are a vendor for here or pirate i forgot. Good product and no spacers was a plus.

    depends on what you call a good fit, or maybe I got a run of bad parts. The holes for my caliper bolts were not cut very straigh. This caused my calipers to bind and not freely move on the bolts. I was sent two sets that were this way. I was then sent a set of his brackets that used spacers, and they were much better. Also, I was promised a refund, and have never recieved it. This was months ago.
