    No, but I talked to Bill from Az Kickin OffRoad here in Tucson and slapped some discs on there instead. It was about he same cost. And it's a piece of cake, AND it looks really cool. Chicks DIG IT /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    C,mon, I'm a scatterbrain and it only took me 3 hours to swap em. I learned a lesson on a buddies truck tho. The bleeders need to be facing up. We went thru 4 bottles of fluid trying to bleed his brakes. The fluid went in the caliper and right out the bleeder screw and NEVER filled the caliper. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif We swapped sides and it took 5 minutes.

    Why not convert to disc?
    Grady's has everything you need to convert to disc brakes. Just a thought????
