    OK, the time has come to actually do something with the 3/4,1ton rear-end I bought. Its an Eaton and I want to know who is running this and do you have disks on it? Oh and I assume that to run 15" wheels with the disks would be the same as if it were in the front,as far as grinding? or.........

    Not to many folks use/modify the Eaton rear only because parts are not as avaliable as the 14/60/12 rears. For example try and get a R&P set in a 4.56. You may beable to find one but from what I hear most R&P makers just don't make parts for the Eatons /forums/images/icons/frown.gif
    No first hand experiance just what I have read so I could be wrong /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif
    Good Luck

    I have the hook-up on everything R&P related. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif I do quite a few set-ups. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif So not a problem.

    Hey where are you at in Washington? pretty sure everythings the same as converting a 14 bolt. If you have the hookup on gears do you have any 5.13s around? I need to replace a spare set. EATONS RULE!!!!!!!
