should just get a 14 bolt!!!!!
Not this shit again I already know my rear axle set up, a HP60 thats getting converted to full width, full float and bored out for 35 spline shafts. Im perfectly set on using 70's-80's Chevy 3/4 ton front brake rotors and calipers in the rear as I know they will provide me with ample amounts of braking power, that what I have up front. Add in a pinion brake on the transfer case and I know I have plenty.

I was just asking if buying a complete kit or piecing things together on my own, which is the easiest. Seeing that most who have a 60 or 14bolt in the rear use 3/4 ton front chevy brakes stopping power isnt an issue.

Forgiveness is between them and God. It's my job to arrange the meeting.
