  1. Jeff,

    I noticed in your post that you converted to four-wheel disc brakes.  Would the kit fit a B2B?  If so, who sells it?  I've already converted the front end and have been searching for a rear kit.  My rear drums brakes are driving me crazy.

     

    Thanks

    John

      I believe it was out of a 2002 Grand Cherokee. My truck is a 3/4 ton and has 15" wheels on a 5 x 5" pattern and 5/8" lugs which factored into my selection. I did have to use custom 3/8" thick spacers on the rear wheels to have clearance between the stock wheels and the rotors. You should do your own research as your situation may differ.

      All that said this set up makes the old truck brake up there with modern vehicles and that was what I was after.

      I used the rusty hope kit on the front and the rear axle from a Grand Cherokee to get 12" rear discs and a more usable ratio. I also added a grand cherokee M/C and a wilwood proportioning valve. So not a kit but not that hard either.

      Hth, Jeff

  4. Hey jeff

      thankyou for your past information. I can't find nothing in the technical section or in the before Dodge manual on how to remove the door crank handles from the inside of the 53 Dodge truck could you tell me how to do that. Thanks for doing

      Hi Bergy;

      The handles on mine were held on the shaft by a small split pin. You need to use a small diameter punch to push these out. Just push the door card or perhaps the rubber escheon back some and you should be able to see them.

      Hth, Jeff
