Looking for more info on the Tri-County brake rod kit. I understand it improves the brake leverage on a CJ7. Does Tri-County have a web site? Or who carries the kit? Has anyone had experience with the kit. I have an 86 CJ7 with auto and the Mopar Fuel injection kit. With the high idle stopping it is a bear. Will be adding the Offroad Engineering Idle controller eventually but thought the Tri-County mod would also help..

I have never actually seen one but I've had an overview of the project described to be by somebody who
did it. You move the master cylinder up a little and redrill the brake pedal swing arm to put the rod end
closer to the pivot. The Tri-County rod is just an adjustable to get the rod length correct after the mod.
You can make one yourself by cutting the stock rod, threading the ends and using a connector nut
that is about 1-1/2' to 2" long and jam nuts. I never thought much of it because I assume it provides
less piston travel.

Look in the latest issue of Four Wheel Drive and Sport Utility. One of our local 4by shops here in Farmington, All Wheel Drive, has an article on a simple and very effective brake upgrade for CJs. They've done a bunch of them, customers seem to be happy.

Actually it provides a little more piston travel. I used the setup that I removed from Jeepskate on my '86 a month or so ago and am very pleased with the results. There's some pics & a description on my web page and I can scan the magazine article that details the mod if you'd like.
