Since this truck sees mud frequently, we were itching to get rid of the stock four-wheel drum brakes. We can't begin to tell you how much it sucks to inspect/adjust/tear the drums down after every wheeling trip. So, we are going to put disc brakes on the rear in place of the stock drums. However, thanks to swapping hubs, we've got quite a distance to make up between the stock mounting flange and where the caliper needs to ride. We'll figure out where and how to place the caliper after the axle is in the truck.
