    So I'm out back smoking a cig (yeah I know it's bad for me) and I'm leaning against my Supra. Look over at the Sequia SUV that the people in the shop next door have. I notice it has Disc rears. I know the old Toys ran the same lug pattern as half ton chevy's do. Take a peak under it and it appears to be the same set up as my Supra. Nice small relatively low volume caliper with the inside of the disc having a small drum parking brake. THe Disc installs like a front drive car OVER the end of the axle. It has a bigger hole in the center than GM rims. Might have to run the Jap studs to get the shoulders on the lugs to center the disc. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
    Down side is Toy parts are darn expensive.

    The rear of Isuzu troopers are six lug with disc brakes too. The early ones have the E brake on the disc caliper. the new ones have a small drum for the E brake.
