    Now you can probably feel your axle wrap up when you stop as much as when you take off...:haha:

    Those are some huge blocks :eek1: . I need to get a disc set up on my 14 bolt . Is it really that much of a difference in stopping power ? I was just gonna get the sky brackets and new rotors and calipers . I need an e-brake though . I was told it takes 100+ lbs off the rear axle . Is that also true ?

    You can get the same style brackets as Sky Mfg from Gravelmaker on this site for half the price.

    Don't know about 100# but The stopping power is awesome.Nice and smooth too. Yes those blocks will go away shortly, in favor of shackle flip. And yes with the power I'm making and those tires, axle wrap is abundant.All it takes is $$$$$...:doah:
