Is there a bolt on kit for disk brakes?
I did a search and didn't find anything so sorry if this has been covered.

Are you going to want stock height or lowered when you are done. Depending on what height you want depends on how you do it.

The SoCal/AC Industries kit is the least expensive Wide 5 option. Only hang up is apparently you can't use the stock 14" wheels with it. I have a new one in the box that I never used and probably never will. I had the hub/rotors drilled and tapped for 14mm studs vs. the stock size 12mm. I was going to use screw in studs with lug nuts instead of the stock bolts.....can't stand wheel bolts.

Actually it's for a friend of mine who uses the Thing for off road use mainly.

Kubelmann's info was what I think he is looking for.


Matt are you thinking of selling what you have?


Thanks for the help I new I came to the right place!
