I run $400 HD KAM shafts in my rear Sals with an ARB and 4.10s running on 35s. Never had an issue. For $400 it's worth it not getting stuck in a precarious place or changing a shaft in the mud.

TerriAnn.

Didn't you put the Torrel Industries disc brake conversion kit on your LR from Mountain Expedition Equipment ?

So do you think the ROAM kit is just better ? or better financially ?

Thanks.

Yes I did. What I can say is that the kit is very complete even including special sockets that can be hard to find. They assume that you don't need wheel bearings but just about everything for the conversion is in the box. The kit was an easy bolt on. If you have ever replaced wheel bearings the project is basically the same.

I have a web page that goes over the conversion.

I have no experience with a ROAM kit. I have not seen one nor driven a LR with the kit installed to I am not qualified to give an opinion.

The Torrel kit is more complete than the ROAM kit and I think is under half the price, possibly even 1/3rd the price by the time you put the wheels back on your truck.

To date I have been happy with the Torrel conversion. Especially coming out of a water crossing or stopping and holding a 109 on a steep nose up position. Holding a 109 still in a steep nose up position is very difficult with stock drum brakes.
