It is much more simple to get a normal proportioning valve or use the factory MJ's 50/50 split with the load valve removed.

In theory, as the load increases in the bed more braking bias would be sent to the rear brakes. That IS the MJ's proportioning valve.

Nice work on the truck
Thanks, I've read your thread on your '92, nice job especially on the bedliner.

Still waiting for few parts I have on order, and still have a few more 12 hour days to work.... I did manage to finish the brakes and lines. Finished grinding down the last brake line and cleaned them both up...



Installed...



Still looking into the parking brake cables, but they can be installed after the diff is in place.

I don't know if this has been said before, but this Comanche will probably be in better condition then when it came off the line. Great work

After my 8 day stretch at work, I ended up with just two days off before heading back this morning. I did get the rest of my parts together for my rear diff. Even managed to find some e-brake cables at the Pull a Part. So far the biggest PITA has turned out to be the rear shackles. They really did not want to come out. Ready to install:



I narrowed my diff cover choices down to either Ruff Stuff Specialties or Riddler Manufacturing.



I got the Riddler. The cover came unfinished, so I painted it the same cast coat gray as the front and highlighted the logo:



I like the way it turned out:



With the exception of the parking brake cables, all done and waiting for a day off to install. Later this week I hope.

Thanks Lincoln. I'll have to let the new wear off it first.

Your brake line splitter on the rear axle looks to be on backwards.

I've been following this thread for a while, really clean work so far - keep it up!

Thanks. I thought that same thing a couple of times, but the splitter is turned the right way for an MJ.
