Does anyone know what brand of caliper All-Pro uses for their t-case brake? My caliper doesn't hold that good on steep hills so I'm looking for something a little stronger.

try these guys!

Tol-o-matic

They make a couple different types and you can check the surface area of yours and get one bigger

I don't see that the brand really matters much in the equation. You gotta have 2 things:
1. Enough clamping force on the pads to rotor to hold it in place
2. Enough sirface area on the pads the rotor to do the job

So can you put more pressure on it and get it to hold?
Have you looked into moving the caliper further from the center of the rotor to help hold better?
How does your caliper compare to the APOR one for surface area?

The caliper that I'm using now is made by Tol-O-matic. It's the same one that Wilwood sells. It uses two small pucks so there isn't a lot of surface area. It holds pretty good but it's still not quite enough. Chris, can I buy one directly from you guys?
