    i know this has probly been covered before, yes i searched and i didnt come up with anything useful.

    i have a narrow 14bff out of a c&c pickup, can i run the disc brake setup of a srw 14 bolt?

    Its not a bolt-on. The backing plate flanges are a few inches further inboard. You could do a weld-on bracket, move the backing plate flange, or fab a new flange.

    I think a dually rear drum has more braking surface than a disc. (unless the wheels are larger than 17", so that you can fit a larger disc in.)
