    Except for the caliper mounting bracket, it seems like all of the rear disc brake conversion "kits" are just a collection of OEM parts. If that's the case and for easier maintenance/repair, what do you think of making a home-made caliper mounting braket and using the same rotors/caliper/etc on the rear 14-bolt as is used on the front Dana 60?

    Thanks

    Yeah, but just the caliper brackets for a 14 bolt FF from TSM are only $110/pr. Why bother screwing with fabbing something up for that cheap a price? Time is money, and unless your hours aren't valuable, then have at fabbing the brackets.
