LOL, or marn, if you just wanna see what it's like with rear brakes that lock up before the front we can take my truck to some lot late at night and do a 0-60-0 run and see if it's even possible for me without getting sideways to use full brakes. Those valves are cheap and I was going to get one but then I realized how much I like it in the dirt and decided for the little street use it sees I'll play the odds. BTW, don't spend your money on the name brand ones, wilwood makes the summit one and I believe the jegs one private label. They're cheaper then the "name" but they're the exact same part. I can double check on that though for you tomorrow if you want it verified. My coworker's previous gig was design at willwood.

And for the brake lines, LOL vice grips yo! HAHAHAHA, okay, last resort but just saying... I've got some line wrenches if you need them and obviously am just down the street.

Oh and how was that dinner gig????

A question for you guys that rent homes. What is the price of homes near where you live? I need to move out of my apartment as its just plain ***** here. Budget is around 1000 $ but obviously the lower the better.

Khris,

Yes, I was planning to test things out. Like I said, a few people told me they are running without the PV, but as is seen, results may vary! I'll try a new MC and see where that gets me. It seems to be the biggest problem when people convert to disc in the rear as well because of the increased stopping power back there.

Also, Greg, yes, I have a flare nut wrench, well, a few of them. And yes they have definitely saved my butt a few times!

Anyway, the jeep is driving now, and it steers fine, so thats good, just doesnt stop so well haha. I'll pick up a reman MC (15 bucks who cares) and see if it'll mount up to my booster. if so, i'll get working on the new lines.

hell i could always pick up a dual diaphragm booster from a J20 and run that bad boy, maybe get me a lil more oomph!

Again thanks for the help guys!

Same but sunset and fort apache. There are a few for rent by me there was even one for 900. We could of went cheaper if we moved closer in to the center. Look up zillow or hot pads. I found ours by driving though the area we wanted to be in. Condos are the same if not worse than apartments. Try to find a detached house where HOAs aren't on your *** 24/7

You probably see my ZJ all the time since you live close to my friend.

Thats the area ive always lived in and I love the SW. My buddy lives off of warm springs and fort apache and he hates his HOA.

Somerhing towards the SW but maybe towards the center might be good as its less chance of a HOA and you get more of a garage.

I have zillow (both apps) and they are good to use actually. Im always looking for that killer deal out there.

But if you see any good deals around your area let me know please. Maybe we can live next to each other!!

You're going to want the PV. Towing you're going to want your brake balance to be correct. I'd do the dual diaphragm.
