    az-kickin offroad makes the 14bff rear disc brackets, and they are SWEET..when we did chevy4wd's, neither of us thought that they would be as stout and "pretty" as they were when we saw them.. a great product, and 3/4 ton 4wd front rotors, with 3/4 or 1/2 ton front calipers will complete the swap.. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    bry..

    you seperate the drum from the hub...
    then reinstall the rotor onto the hub...
    all new wheel studs, new races, bearings and seals...
    and make sure everything that came out, goes back in...

    really simple swap, and the bracket for the caliper mounts to existing holes in the axle tube for the drum backing plates, and you can clock the bracket around the axle for clearance.. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    cut? no, the rotor is bought new, or machine an old one.. rotor only, the rotor and hub seperate, as do the drum and hub.. you use 3/4 ton rotor because it too, is 8 lug, the same as the hub for the 14bff..

    no....

    the drum comes apart from the 14bff hub
    the rotor takes its place

    the brackets come with aluminum spacers for mounting purposes..
