Yeah they are not the same. Look at the picture I posted above and look at your picture. I have read about guys clamping them somehow. I live on a hill, so I didn't want to trust my parking brakes to a clamp.

finished cleaning up the 44, its all done except for gears and brakes, im going to keep the drums on there for now and if i have a little bit of cash later ill do the disk brake conversion.

i got a MML for xmas so i can now get rid of that dang transfer case drop

and as soon as i find the money for new gears, install kits, and a new D30 Carrier i can get some 4.88s and a Hp30 under there and get back to enjoying driving




and i did some HDRs because i got bored

Good looking jeep! You say you got an MML for Christmas...are you planning on a body lift as well? or can you just run an MML on its own?

thanks
its recommended to run the MML with a body lift but i didnt do one, the purpose of mine was just so i could get rid of my TC drop and not have horrible vibes. the install process was the same i just had to drill new holes in the fan shroud which wasnt difficult. i will add a body lift possible if i move to 35s.

Pics or it didn't happen.
