Truck looked really good out there man!
Thanks dude. I didn’t get as many miles in it as I would’ve liked. Someone in our group had a pretty bad rollover Saturday and spent most of the day trying to get the truck out of the desert.

Of course. Sorry your only ride in the truck was at night and on a racecourse that had been hammered on all day. The course was seriously chewed up after the race….

Ok so there’s a slight issue (large issue) with the rear brakes on this thing.

I am missing pieces. And I’m not sure why or how. Or what to call said missing pieces so I can order them.



Not sure how I missed this durring assembly but there’s no clip holding both pads together. Nor is there a place to put the clips. This led to the brake pads “floating” independently during braking and making a horrible noise/feeling under braking.

From what I gather I am missing this



What is that and why don’t I have it….

Hoping I don’t have to chop the caliper tabs off the rear end and start over because of this…

Idk why you dont have one.. are they stock brakes off something..? I dont remember what axle setup you have..
The brake caliper bracket should be bolted to whatever tabs you have on the axle and have been the main structure for the brake assembly.
Then these bolts or slide pins, bolt the caliper to the caliper bracket.
