    Why did you use a proportioning valve?? Have you driven your truck with out it to see if you really needed it??
    Looks good though, I willbe doing the same swap here in the next week :)

    another member here, jms, pointed me in that direction. instead of getting the weiand prop valve that you put in line to adjust the flow, you get the one form inline and supposively it automatically routes the correct amount of fluid to all the calipers since i went to disc in the rear.

    why adjust when you dont have to. i got an adjustable sitting in the garage in the package, but i figured for 50 bucks more, why adjust?

    Looks like I'm gonna be doing the same kinda thing as you. Except I've got the entire 3/4 ton frame and all. I gotta put the engine and everything on the 3/4 ton frame as well as a 4" lift.
