    i got the diy4x brackets on mine, works great and imo they are the best brackets you can get for the price

    the sky ones are nice too if you want a one piece bracket my buddy has them on his truck

    None of the above. I use 6061-T6 billet aluminum brackets made by M&M Machine. These are one piece adaptors that use no spacers at all. Awesome and beautiful, too.

    I think they sell for around $125-$150, can't remember for sure. I need to find the phone number for that shop though.

    I used SKY. Mainly because I was pissed about my drums falling apart and the wheels locking up on me....Stupid P.O.

    SKY happened to be the first one to answer the phone, out of all that i called.

    DIY. It was the cheapest kit at the time of my purchase. Plus Kert makes some beefy stuff. Very happy with it.

    I did my rear disc swap when it was first being done and bought my brackets from a member here (derbinator). $50.00 plus shipping IIRC.

    Those are awesome!! :pimp: I did some searching around the net, but I can't find M&M Machine. Do you have a web address or know how to find them?

    I think Kert might be getting some of my business here....

    I went with great lake offroad too. I probably would have gone with the DIY4x, but they didn't have the stuff for a D70. Those aluminum ones from M&M look awesome.

    They don't have a website. They go by "bulletproofbillets" on eBay and their e-mail address is mccaigj@bellsouth.net. Ask for Jim or Renee and let them know I sent you.

    I havn't seen any of the other ones (or DIY's for that matter) but everything else I've got from Kert has been awesome :waytogo: I sure wish I could work metal like he does

    I used diy4x4 and wasn't happy with them. I had alot of fitment problems with them. There beefy has hell though. but anyways they serverd my purpose and the price was way cheaper than everyone else.
