    What a monster!![​IMG] So what did you use for the disc brake set-up? What are the calipers and rotors from?

    So what kind of tires are going to be under this monster when its all said and done?

    At least now it looks like you have a shop to work in....[​IMG]
    Keep the pics coming.

    Hows this for a pic...

    The calipers and rotors are 91 Chevrolet 1/2 ton fronts.
    The tires will be Super Swamper TSLs, 44s.
    That is 29" of space under that rear tire, and it wasn't lifting any of the other tires, Chris stopped lifting because he was afraid of tipping it over.

    HarryH3,
    [​IMG]
    The calipers for 1/2 and 3/4 tons are the same, and we had to use 1/2 ton rotors to match up with the size of the hub. So, if we determine that we need more stopping power, we set the axles up so we can add another set of brackets, and calipers to the front of the axle, and double the stopping power. We will probably try to set the front up the same way, when we get to the front, steering is the next on the list.
