    So am I reading it right. They claim that You can use 71-78 1/2 ton calipers on a 14 bolt! All the companys I have seen have stated that 3/4 ton calipers were required.

    just some word of advice....
    if you plan on going to a D60 front or already have one, put brand new ten bolt calipers on your rear. you have to buy brake lines anyway, right? so the idea is this. 10 bolt and D60 brake lines are innerchangeable(sp?) break a front line is bad, but being able to take off a rear and fix the front so you can stop is always nice. it also makes for less hard line on the back and it can be a tad of a pain to place hard line around a 14 bolt.
