Antagonist I know this thread has been dormant for a while, but do you have any more info on your front brakes set up? I'm trying to run wheel mounted disc brakes on rockwells also, and I'm not finding many answers that aren't budget busters. Mean ass build buy the way!

Willys 4x4 Very nice work dude, that is going to be one sexy machine.

And don't sweat the speedo at all, mine is 5 mph slow but that's tolerable. My Auto meter speedo was ten mph slow so I ditched it.

Good luck on the rest of the build and can't wait to see more.

Back to subject:
