The manual-disc pickup trucks were also the validator for pursuing my last disc conversion as manual brakes.Since purchasing the 1983 Dodge D150 Miser pickup, I now KNOW BEYOND ALL DOUBT THAT A VIABLE MANUAL DISC BRAKE SYSTEM CAN BE BUILT FOR 2 TON VEHICLES! If I really want front disc brakes for any C body I'll drive, I plan to base it on the design and specs used for that pickup truck.
If the factory did it, it went thru a lot of testing.
Manual brakes aren't for everybody, but I sure love the feel and control of mine.
