    never thought about the e-brake thing but it will be better than what I have now which I had planned on cutting off anyhow. My e-brake is a drum mounted on the rear of my transmission and is a PItA, it's a maintenance headache & in the way for my floor shifter I want to install. I think brake fittings are pretty standard so I'm not too concerned about that.

    you can convert that pinion brake to a disk style over the huge drum or use the cables with the new axle and just make one out of a import lift up handle

    Gonna do the latter method but no import handle, it will be made in the U.S.A. namely in my shop and you can bet it's gonna be unique

    Hard to say if it's the same. If it's an 8 3/4 you'll have to check the case number. Otherwise like wookie suggested, conversion u-joints are available.

    Got the rear end and it's in the truck, the big hitch is that my old rims won't fit, the rear end is out of an 86 dodge and takes a bigger bolt pattern 5 on 5 1/2 looking for steel rims with the round holes around the entire perimeter of the rim, kinda like the doughnut spare rims
