The only brackets I've found are made by JT Outfitters and use GM Monte Carlo (no park brake) or Eldorado (park brake) calipers.

That said, If there is anyone else make the brackets, I'm looking too.

I'm gonna order a set from JTO. If you have a machine shop that can make some I'll send ya mine for measruements.

I'm think'n I may see if I can get some done locally for resell...unless Poser or orangefj45 are planning on doing them. I'll keep ya posted.

Cool thanx...

Yeah, I can do the rotors here at work.Just can't do the brackets.Thats really the part I need.I won't get much time to work on her until X-mas break.Takeing a couple days off work between x-mas and new years.These 75+ hour weeks are starting to get to me a lil bit. OT = cruiser $

mike you flatlander! i guess on a 40 you could still use the t-case mounted ebrake setup or just eliminate the ebrake all together. i like having a functional ebrake and the 60 axles definetly offer just that with the stock drums. imho.

I thought about switching to the Eldo calipers to keep the ebrake on the axle but I already got everyhting else from my 40 setup. Get'n cheap in my old age. Been giving serious thought to line-locks too:D

my appologies for continually hijacking this thread. don;t waste your time with the eldo calipers. i do not know a single person who has installed them and is happy with how they work. willwood is coming out with a set of calipers that do the same thing but with a much better design. looking forward to seeing those and how they work.

I go away for a day and the thread blows up. haha.No internet at home yet, I'm never there working 75+ hour weeks and all.
I sent a email reply to the offer.
I'm going the same route, 60 axles under a 40 so I still got a parking brake on the TC. That and I'm throwing in a line lock also. Already got my fj80 master.

Hijack all ya want.
