    Default axle conversion brakets and parts

    The search is over axles I've bought a (F-250) 3/4 ton 1979; Dana (HP) 44 a front and dana 60 rear.

    Disc brake conversion for the rear is simple enough found a complete kit (bolt on) for $385 http://www.twiztedengineering.com/se...rd-Disc/Detail I think buying the parts new from local shops and the brake brackets is close to the same price give or take $20.

    Anyway anyone on here sell the front and rear axle brakets I need to put these under a TJ?

    I'd lean towards the Ballistic Fabrication Brackets personally Larry. I have used them before and they are SOLID.

    what axles you running now? what you gonna do with them once out? You could cut the mounts off your current axles and get them welded on the new axles...

    That is an option-but the Dana 60 rear diameter is much bigger than the D35. I have already bent/curled the ends of the CA brakets. It's just easier for me to get new thicker brackets and have those welded on. Besides after I get done cutting something off it most likely would be scrap and for a resale point its much better to have it bolt on ready for a TJ.
    I am getting 4 link frame brackets; D60 truss with link tabs; coil buckets; shock tabs and a belly skid from KORE in OK $800.

    The guy (KEN) seemed straight forward and knows how to talk to a "Newbe" at this part of Jeeping.

    Now to get Derrick to call me for some welding fun MUA HA HA

    I can get you everything you need. If you buy the D60 disc brake brackets, I can get you over the counter replacement parts and save you some scratch on the parts. Let me know if I can help.

    It does look good but $99 vs $56 shipped from Ballistic which also has good reviews from a member on here.


    I'm getting a belly skid, and everything except the arms for the D60 from KORE.
    Then it looks like T&T Customs will do the front truss for the 44, waiting tto see aht KORE has for me. Total so far around $1300.00, and I'll need the brake hardware ie rotors, calipers etc for the disc brake conversion on the D60 and to replace the front but that is'nt very much maybe another $300.
