    Yeah, it's a kick ass jack alright. Tires are solid rubber with a nice heavy steel wheel and two sealed bearings in each. I watched a video of a trailer being winched through the sand with the jack down and half buried, no problems... If somebody can break one it will be me.

    Whohoo!!

    Are those replacement backing plates to convert the braking system to electric? Bolts right onto the M101A3 axle flange? Very cool if so.

    Yes Sir and I should be able to use the military drums, too. They have parking brakes, but I'll have to figure out the cable fitment. I want to keep the very handy parking brake levers.

    I got the new brakes and backing plates mounted with no issues. I can still use my old drums and flanges, etc., but still need to figure out the e-brake cables. I'm pretty confident my idea will work, just need to modify the cable some.

    and some rattle can paint, will have to do until the whole thing gets sandblasted.

    bought some new heavyduty shocks too and if anybody needs the part numbers for anything, I've got them.
