Re: 2 questions calipers with e-brake and d18-20
I just saw an article in the latest JP about swapping 18 internals into a 20 case, for the extra case strength and larger idler shaft it looked great. The article was detailed and informative in the usual JP manner (i.e. really vague), but it could be worth trying if you have both cases lying around. If you are sticking with the 18 or a 20 with the offset, why not put the park brake on the t-case output. I am planning on grafting the disc unit from All-Pro Off-Road onto the back of my 18 in my CJ2. It is made for Toyota, but I am sure that with some slight modifications I can get it to work on the CJ. This my be heretical to say, but I am also planning on using a Toyota E-brake handle. All-Pro wants about $300 for their unit, so I will probably look into some home-brew units before I buy a pre-built product.
