I have never seen one in person. I don't see the point personally. The stock lousy drums do it for me. How fast do you really want to try and stop in a Samurai? <IMG SRC="smilies/jeep1.gif" border="0">

ive got em...on my crappy sami axles...and they work. itll be a lot easier to change an axle without the backing plate and all the drum brake shit, and you will like it b/c you will break <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0"> but if youre talking toy axles, then i dont know shit. in that case, go with fattys approach <IMG SRC="smilies/cool.gif" border="0">

Tusker: ever wheel in the mud? Ever notice your shoes don't last long? Ever notice how hard it is to stop after a water hole? Why do you think everyone goes to rear disc? because they like the look? It is generally cheaper to convert to disc than to rebuild drums. Get with it man!!!!!!!!!! <IMG SRC="smilies/pissed.gif" border="0">

mudlite, Lighten up flame-boy! Thanks for the "education", but no I don't wheel in the mud. I do however, as my handle implies, stake out mudholes and shoot gnarly pigs who come to wallow in it. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

The only reason I can think to switch to disk in the rear is for looks, as a matter of fact I'm working on a custom front conversion. I going to switch the disk set up in the front to drums so that I loose some of my stoping power. It should be trick I'll keep you up to date.

Yeah, what fat kid said. front drums rule.. <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">.
really though w/ all the highway driving and all the mud I see here in WA. Rear disks make for some added braking since i highway drive so muc.. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0">..besides they look cool <IMG SRC="smilies/massey.gif" border="0">

Yes they do, disk in the rear that is. I just did a rear conversion on a 98' Tj and its nice, although it cost around $750 for the kit. Not to mention I had to charge some labor, But yes they do look cool. <IMG SRC="smilies/bender.gif" border="0">
