I installed my DB kit and it was as expected, it was very straight forward and the parts are all top quality!

The swivel housings are massive in comparison to the OG ones, I will say this ROAM offroad and Timm Cooper have been great to deal with.

Here is a few pics of my conversion they are still not under the truck but are all togather and just needing me to install my hard lines.

I installed a 15" wheel just to see how it fit and there is plenty of room.

That looks GREAT!
Nice job!

Ive been adding up the drum brake parts I need and its getting pretty far up in dollars.
The only problem is if I install the 2.25 diesel I bought I will have to add an electric vacuum pump.

I'm in the consideration stage now

Thanks its slowly getting there. what about a belt driven pump?

I needed everything drums etc for mine and when all said and done it was a double the price of the drum brakes for the disc upgrade. but that includes new hubs and swivel housings that are way beefy!

I cant wait to try them out.

Youre going to be very happy with these brakes. I've driven several trucks with them and they are great. Can't wait to see what else Brian and Timm have planned!

I'm super excited about that too! Keep an eye on our webpage as we'll soon be adding a EATON section which will host our new HO72 related products and information.

Keep the cool stuff coming Brian!

Nice talking with you and will be ordering your axles and your drive flanges when they are ready!!

Hi Daniel,

Gonzo has a Salisbury up front running 35 spline ROAM shafts and an EATON H072 in the rear with massive 30 spline custom ROAM shafts. The H072 ARB conversion that John (Phoenix37) referred to above was featured on a Pirate4x4 post and is actually Gonzo's 3rd member. I don't have any good pictures on-hand except for this one showing the H072 pinion next to a standard Series pinion. Can you guess which is which? ;o) I'll post some more pictures next week.

Pirate H072 Post:

Thanks!

I saw the stuff on pirate! Nice to see Timm posting stuff too. I figured it was for Gonzo but just wanted to confirm. Man I can't wait to get mine done and get back on the trail again! I'll have to pick up a set of your 24 spline rear shafts for my "wimpy" set up. Can you deliver to Mendo!?

Daniel

Damn that is absolutely freaking amazing. The ARB Eaton thing is just totally unbelievable. I remember asking ARB about fitment when the RD114 came out and taking a tape measure to one to see if it would fit. I gave up and decided to use a Detroit instead. Wow.

Brian, do you guys have a good disc setup for the 101FC front? I developed something using late model Tundra/Landcruiser 200 calipers and Wilwood rotors. It's not done yet but I am getting close. These are huge 4 piston calipers and big rotors. If you are building a 101FC front I would gladly share notes. What is the plan for this Gonzo project?

Cheers

JL (please say hello to Timm for me)

I stand corrected! The picture above is a Salisbury pinion and a regular Series pinion - not a H072 pinion. Timm corrected me by saying: "Please don't insult the HO72!!!! Its pinion is WAY bigger than the Salisbury/Dana 60 pinion in the picture!" I guess I need to go take another picture showing all three. ;o)

JL Ė we donít have any plans to make a 101FC disc conversion. Our conversion fits SIIa and SIIb forward controls and there just isn't enough demand for us to produce one specifically for the 101. That said, Timm has created a 101FC disc conversion in the past and I'm sure he'd be happy to chat with you about it if you are looking to bounce any ideas around.

Thanks!
Brian

Yup, I think it was all Wilwood stuff with custom brackets. Never sell that rig Jeff.

Thanks guys. I thought "Gonzo" was a new buildup. I guess you guys were referring to the 109 pickup that John now owns. I have spoken to Timm a couple of times on the disc setup he built for the 109 and his recommendations and ideas helped me with my current design.

Keep up the good work on the Eaton stuff. Another area where there could be some improvement is a set of custom 5 on 6.5 hubs that would work on the Eaton snout and use an off the shelf disc. Although the axle is well suited to Land-Rover swaps for many reasons, the wheel ends are a bit of an issue for the home garage person that cannot graft on different spindles or stub axles. I reworked a set of 50s forged eaton hubs so that they are 5 on 6.5 and work with stock 14 bolt axles. I am also looking forward to your pinion bearing conversion since this is a costly piece to replace.

Cheers

JL

Gonzo is my SIII 88" that Timm is working on. I drove gonzo for years in stock form and decided to hand it over to Timm when I found out that this would be one of his last builds. It's running a Vortec 6.0L V8, Timm's custom transfer case, 4L65E transmission (auto), SOA, PS, 4-wheel ROAM disc brakes, Salisbury front with 35 spline ROAM shafts and a HO72 Eaton rear running massive custom 30 spline shafts. The front frame horns have been extended and it has rear 88" springs up front and rear 109" springs in the rear for better articulation which has also added the extra bonus of increasing the wheelbase to around 96". ARB front and rear and is presently loaded with 35" tires on ROAM wheels. A lot of focus has gone into keeping it looking clean and somewhat stock. Hopefully it'll be road/trail worthy in the next few weeks. I'll be sure to post some pictures when it's done.

What are you doing for rear hubs Brian? I guess you guys are using your custom Series hubs. Are you using the stock Eaton spindles or have you grafted on stub axles? Anyways it sounds cool. Post some photos when you can.

Cheers

The hubs are from the ROAM disc conversion and we're using custom 4340 spindles that we're prototyping for our 35 spline upgrade that will fit an Eaton or a Salisbury. Yes, there's enough clearance for the 1.530 diameter shaft!

Brian Id like to get a set of your wheels but Timm mentioned they wouldnt clear the calipers on the 101. Can something be done about this?
