10 bucks worth of aluminum

a few minutes of design work, a few hours of machine time, and you wind up with this. What is it?

Close, very close.

Dodge Ram 1500 Centric Premium calipers, dual 54mm pistons, 13.23" diameter x 1.10" thick Centric Premium rotors re-drilled and re-centered to fit on the late model TJ unitbearing inside 17" only rims and EBC yellow pads with a new 1.0625 master to run them off the stock booster.

One can never have too much horsepower, too much steering, or too much brake.

It's going to be the Vanco Super 17 and I'm putting the first one on Gerald's Savvy Unlimited.
