    Bill (45acp) has a Ford HP with GM knuckles-outward.

    Dan (KRAZIE87K5) has the opposite. His is a Dodge D60 with Ford knuckles-outward.

    I put 3/4 ton chevy calipers in my HP 60 so I could run 15" rims. I got the caliper mounts from JB's 4x4. I was a little leary about putting smaller brakes on but with rear discs too the truck stops on a dime!
