Well I’m fucked if I can find the original discussion thread, if anyone can that would be sick but I’ve been looking for way longer than I should have.

Great idea mate..

I was wanting to replace 2 sections on my chassis rails...citing them off and straightening them didn't cross my mind.

What hubs are you running?  Sorry if you've already said but I missed it.

Are s13 discs and calipers an option? I'm sure 14's clear them and with decent pads they're a very capable brake set up.

The hubs are S13 4 stud. The s13 disc (254mm) and calipers (single pot) are decent but they HP vs size bracket I’m aiming to be In Requires 2pots and 280mm vented.

would be perfect for an NA setup.

I'm sure there's others, but vg30 2wd D21 navara have a two pot caliper. Both pots at the rear side, so they don't prevent the use of fully hektik negative offset wheels.
