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.
