Nice. Problem solved.

If you are thinking about upgrading the brakes, now would be an ideal time. I like spending other peoples $.

The axle will have D30 style outers, right?

We can still make a truss for it if you wish.

Somebody here would probably like your current stuff (hub kit etc). So selling those items should help offset costs.

It will be using my 30 outters. Question. Since Im using my 30 outters, can I still use my Warn hub conversion on it or it that done? As for the truss, of course we can still work your magic.....What options do I have to do away with the 30 outters and get something better? Im running 17" rims so bigger brakes would be nice but I dont wanna pay a fortune for Blaines although its a GREAT setup I rather spend a G somewhere else.

If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.

If you are staying with Spicer 760 series sized ujoints & D30 knuckles, I don't see why you couldn't keep the hub kit.

I'll call Blaine tomorrow to see if he has some magic up his sleeve.

I ran the very first Big Brake Kit (typically installed on 16" wheels) on my old HPD30 that had a Warn hub kit and a bunch of other polish.

The brakes were nothing short of amazing.

Oh I bet. Now if he wants me to be a guinnea pig and try some cool new product then I'm all about that. But I cant drop 1000+ on front brakes. At least not so soon after my big purchase.

If your replacing the Dana30 pm with all the parts you won't be needing.

Thanks

not really saving anything... Housing is going to be destroyed because I have to cut off the C's for Currie's exchance policy, knuckles, hub conversion is being reused. ARB and ring gears, pinion might be the only thing I'll put up but I may have a buyer already. It's 4.56 gears btw. After I begin dialing it in, I'll be going with either wj brakes and knuckles or better. The axles are up for grades and those will be FREE...
