What does getting up to 30 mph have to do with pinion brakes?
I didin't say anything in reference to them being more expensive than 1tons. I agree they are cheaper than tons that is why I chose them for my truck. I was just asuming from what he said he was thinking that he could swap his axles out to rockwells for a couple thousand dollars. It was wrong of me to assume that. I was exagerating with the 10K figure but it sure isn't cheap to build anything wether it be 1tons or 2 1/2 tons. I thought I could build mine for 8K but I have already spent 14K and will probably take another 8k before it is done. But anyway don't you run the factory brakes on yours ricky? I thought I remembered you wanting the factory brakes back after getting rid of them so you could run them. I would run pinion brakes if your not planning on driving it on the road. they can be done for about $150
