Status Update

I apologize again for my delay in posting any info. Things have been crazy between work, COVID, and the holidays and I haven't had time to be on here.

I think I've made it through all the messages and posts, I'll be replying to messages after I get this posted.

I updated the list in post 1 based on people who have shown interest in the past few months. If I missed anyone, please let me know.


Parts status right now:

I have about 9 kits that are just about ready to go out the door.

I'll be placing an order for more brake flex hoses tomorrow. I plan to place a large enough order to cover the rest of the brackets that I have in stock.

Once the hoses are made I'll have an additional 5 kits ready to go.

Parking brake cables have been difficult to come by, especially in large quantities. So I'm ordering what I can when I find them for reasonable prices. Trying not to order anything that would raise the price of the kit.

The hard lines for the brakes are made after the order is placed because they are model year specific. So please understand that there will be a slight delay to get those put together before the kit ships.

I understand that it's been a while, and some people may have lost interest or are not in a financial position to purchase the kits at this time. So if you're ready to purchase a kit now and want it shipped soon, please let me know so I can get an invoice sent out. I will prioritize the orders based on the list in post 1 as long as they are paid.

Here is part 1 of the installation of this conversion kit. This covers the installation of the brackets, calipers, and brake lines. I got the full meal deal from @midcoma , so it includes the hard lines as well as the soft lines. Thank you very much for the easy to follow instructions, good sir. I'll be covering the parking brake bracket and cable installation in the next installment, which should be done next week

I would like to be added to the wait list for a full kit with e-brake and all you have to offer. These will be for my 01 tacoma. If this hasnít been done on a taco yet Iím willing to be the guinea pig.

I am unable to send a PM on this board yet. I am a member of tacomaworld and frequent that site regularly. You should post about your kit over there also. My username there is the same as here: Jonesbt. I can also be reached at bjones25@harding.edu

Here is part 2 of the rear disc brake conversion kit installation. This covers the installation of the parking/emergency brake bracket and getting it all tied into the factory hand brake. Again, I'd like to give a huge shout out to @midcoma for the easy to follow instructions, which makes getting this kit installed a real treat. I hope this helps someone.

Cheers

Howdy. I'm a new member, but I have a '96 4Runner w/ a 3.4 and a 5spd at 297K that I'm breathing life back into and this would be an excellent addition. Please put me down for the entire package (conversion plate kit, parking brake kit, and brake lines). I don't think I can send PM's yet, but will check back frequently. Thanks for taking the time to design and put this all together!

Added you to the list. We'll have to talk about the Tacoma. I'm assuming the '01 has ABS?

Why would Amazon wait until the day a product was scheduled for delivery to send this notification?!

oofa, seems to be a theme with most my online orders lately too.

Huge thanks for adding me to the list! I should probably mention I intend to lift my 3rd gen 2.5 - 3" from stock (depending on how much the OME 890 rear springs settle). In case this will affect the length of the softer brake lines for my kit.

It won't affect the length of the ones in the kit but it's recommended you get a new one that goes from the top on the frame down to the middle of the axle.

I have robbed parts from 01 2 & 4wd base sr5 ltd all had new Master and Trac Sys.
