    I just got an email back from Skip at TSM.
    The question I asked him was will calipers from a front 1/2 ton Dana 44 axle work with the new rear disk bracket they make now for 14 bolt FF?

    The answer, is Yes. They didn't get into specifics though, they just told me it would work. This is good news to me b/c I won't have to buy calipers when I do the swap. I can use the calipers from my front Dana 44 when I do the swap. No Ebrake though. I guess for yall with manual Trannies, this won't help, but for auto tranny, this will work. Thought I share.

    <font color=blue>I have the TSM kit on my 14 bolt with the eldo calipers (cant pass inspection here witout e-brake cables). I havent gotten the new cables made yet and I have the SM465 so if I want to park it I have to put it in gear. Kind of a pain when I gotta get out and turn the Warns!</font color=blue>
