    I need a set of D44 3/4 ton brake calipers to finish my disc brake conversion.

    Also how do you go about posting pics here?

    You can also use calipers off of any 10 bolt or D44, 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton. They are all the same caliper.

    For posting pics you need to upload them on the internet to a location that allows remote linking (like Imagestation ) or in the Members rides section of this site (currently has a few glitches right now though). Then view the photo and right click on it. Select properties. Then cut and paste the web address for the actual photo from the properties box to the image box here in the forums.
