    Anyone make caliper brackets, or do I have to use the backing plates? Will 2 wheel drive 3/4 ton backing plates work? Whatcha got?

    Thanks,
    John

    2wd parts will not work. You need the backing plates from a 3/4 ton axle at a minimum to convert a front axle from 1/2 to 3/4 ton. I have a set of blue powdercoated backing plates, but don't have them in my hands right now. Loaned them out to black widow performance guys to see if they could make new ones for conversions.

    When you get them back, put me on the list to get them. Thanks.
