Rear Drum to Disc Brake Conversion Kits for Dakotas and Durangos

I am making this thread to see if there is any interest for a rear disc brake kit. It fits both the 8 1/4" rear and 9 1/4" rear. The best part of all it will clear 15" rims so no need to do the 03/04 disc conversion that doesn't fit a 15" wheel.

Here is the kit: http://www.tsmmfg.com/2552.htm

Still working out the details but so far it is 20% off of 3 or more orders. So we only need three people to make this happen. I am one of the three so we actually need two at the bare minimum.

If interested just post up or PM me.

Again I'm still working on the details but so far it's 20% off three or more orders. We can get more than three people in also if the interest is there.

damn i just baught this kit like 2 weeks ago lol
yes the pads come with. they are calipers from a 78-83 Monte Carlo, so new pads would be likewise
i paid somewhere around 500 for the kit including shipping. this was for the non-e-brake kit. Install went good, there was a problem with my caliper mounting brackets, the threaded bosses for the slide pins were 1/2" but were supposed to be 1/4", instead of dealing with shipping i grinded them down myself. i called TSM a couple times, great customer service and super helpful. while i did the install, i also undercoated my fenders, replaced my axle seals and bearings, and painted everything with caliper paint to make it look pretty. after replacing a few brake lines, buying the kit, the above stuff and other randoms i was probably clocked in at around $700 total. i am very happy with the kit, looks great, performs alot better than stock.
worth the $700? some might not think so, but i like to spend my money, and my #1 pet peeve about these r/t's was that they had junk ass rear drums.
