as far as i know you could just bolt up the super duty disc brakes as long as you have a 10.25 rear end and find a recked super duty thats around a 99 i know i could bolt up my dads disc brakes on my axel cause they used the same rear axel.

I bought this kit and couldn't be happier with it. Skip is the owner and drives an OBS - he can walk you through just about anything over the phone.

yeah we have fabricated our own up be4 for our mud trucks in the past it can be so simple it almost seems wrong to do..

basicly you unbolt all the drum stuff or cutoff in some cases put the rotor on find some nuts to hold it tight over the lugs apply caliper where you want it Fab a bracket compress claiper weld bracket to axle.

thats a train wreck explination
