no air brakes for me I will make a set of pinion brakes.

OK here is the plan I will be takeing a94 YJ makeing it a 4 door with the help of another tub. then installing the 8ton diffs and t-case. put in some sort of big block and 2wd tranny. It will be running 2 sets of tires 53" for play and comps 66" tires for monster truck shows.  :mrgreen:
here is some more pic's


I have rockwell parts going into the new rig here is the rockwell 2speed T-case with front axle disingage

locker switch for the rear diff

With a big enough hammer and a welder you can build anything.
Why does your Jeep say Toyota on it?
The obstacle is the path.

Remember that the pinion spins X times faster than the tires due to the gearset in the diff. Those rotors will get very, very hot.
You'll have to find a way to let the heat out of the rotor, rather than let it seep up and down the driveline. I've seen countless seals go on pinions and ujoint caps.
Cross drilled and slotted rotors might be the way to go.

Might be worthwhile to try and convert to hydraulic disc brakes, and save the pinion brake for an e-brake/parking brake. Look at Willwood for the calipers and rotors and bracketry to go on the Diff. Then there is also USA6x6 (if you are willing to wait for a long delivery time).
Or keep the air-brake setup? Not sure if you would need a Class1 or air-brake endorsement for an OHV application.

Good luck with that, let us know how it turns out!
