    My 1967 F134 CJ5 basket case is moving along. I am happy with Brennan’s garage disc brake bracket. I may even do the rear too. It was quite easy. Thanks for the help over the past several months. I know I’ve been asking a bunch of silly questions. Disk brake Medium.jpeg Roller Medium.jpeg

    Looking good!
    Brennan's disc brake conversion is well engineered and machined.
    15" wheels with 1.25" spacers works and doesn't poke the tires out to far.

    One part... one bolt at a time:)

    Thanks gents. Lunchbox lockers in both axles, full floater D44, Brennan’s disk brake upgrade, knuckle button head bolt upgrade. My next job is the dual master cylinder and brake lines. Still waiting on gears for the transmission and the rebuild kit for the Dana 18. I plan on painting it Geyser Blue. Seems like I have a LONG way to go.

    What kind of tires are those? They look like some BFG front tires for a Baja buggy that had a great size.

    They look like Super traction 6.00 or 6.50 x 15
    Around 29 or 30" overall.

    Super traction is right but they are 16 inch not 15. I measured 31 inches—empirically.

    Looks GREAT! I love nothing more than freshly cleaned and painted parts. You’re doing things the right way. It might seem like you have a million miles to go, but it’s one step at a time. You’ll get there before you know it and the reward will be well worth it.

    You should start a build thread if you haven’t already.
