Taradon Disc Brake Conversion

Anybody have any pictures of their Taradon disc brake kit they'd be willing to share. I'm trying to compare the Exaxt and Killer Axles kits with them to see what style I may want to go with.

I have Exaxt's kit on my 404's. Uses F-250 discs and calipers. Haven't seen Taradon's. I think Kiler Axles uses two calipers per disc. Anyone know what vehicle Taradon's parts are off of?

I have Taradon's on my rig, no pics at the moment. They use all older chevy 3/4 ton parts (large caliper).

Does Taradon's hub use a labyrinth seal guard like Exaxt's or is it without like Killeraxles? In addition, those of you running the Killeraxles hubs, have you ever had a problem with the labyrinth seal getting taken out on the trail by having no guard?

From the pics that I have seen, the seal guard shields the seal from mud and crap from getting into your oil seal. I machined the same thing into my hubs. Whether or not they make a difference is pretty hard to prove. The original mog hubs did provide the same shielding.

It is similar to the shield that you would find on a rearend yoke. They add the shield close to the seal to prevent contamination of the seal.

I just received my 404's from Taradon with the disk brake conversion. I took pics last night but I don't have a source to post them. I will post them when I find some place.
