    a learning experience is one of those things that says, you know that thing you just did...don't do that again.

    Never seen a specific BB kit for the early style knuckles. The Black Magic kit went with the more common post '90 knuckle and machined them to fit what ever year Ford floating caliper (Explorer). With the bolt in style bracket, you could choose from other floating and non-floating 15" hardware and roll your own. I have my 87' D30 apart for paint at the moment.....so I'm interested in seeing what your planning.

    Oh I have plans for a bolt on Big brake kit that will be easy for anyone to install into any XJ/MJ/YJ or TJ but until I actually assemble the parts Nothing is 100% for sure and just plans and experimentation..

    I just built custom caliper brackets to mount 4 piston Brembo calipers and rotors to my stock 2000 WJ front D30 ( I have a Rear WK D44 with factory Brembo's in the rear of my MJ so I need to match up the fronts)...

    Once I have the parts assembled then I will make the kit available...
