      Following- I really need to put together a better performing brake package for my xlt. The 20's look good on it, but definitely killed my braking performance & I want to drag the camper a long way next summer.

      Nice to see Chris is still kicking these out. I tripped on to this thread by accident and recognized his work right away. I am still very happy with the set he did for my V8 Ranger after 150,000 miles of driving. Not a single issue at all and a great honest guy to deal with. I also noticed that my truck was referenced above but the link quoted no longer supports photos. The build info and photos are still available at another site, just google "Life After the Terminator."

      I know you are going to love those brakes!!

      yes I used your truck for reference. I was the one whom contacted you about his info, thank you very much for the help in getting in touch with him, he remembers doing your brakes and is very happy that they have worked out so well for you. I'm shooting to have this done before my daughter is born in March and waiting for paypal to transfer funds over so I can pay Chris he has everything ready. the hurricane push this back. All's left it to get front rotors and pads. Also had to break down and replace the rears had a caliper hang up so that slowed this process.

      you would benefit from what jbrown1238 had done with his Ranger. using calipers and rotor from a early Cobra. 97-04 I believe were the same

      J_Train,

      You will be very happy with his work. The wait will be worth it. He is one heck of a fabricator.

      I imagine our trucks will probably pass on the road at some point in the future. I get up to Homossasa Florida five days a week and LaGrange Georgia maybe once a year or so.

      What do you do when your in Homosassa? or just passing through? I could have sworn I have seen your truck when I'm passing through to My dads to drop off my son before work.
