Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: How much better are 11" brake for my 47 CJ2A Jeep? Also, This jeep will be use as a regular Car. I hear the 11" backing plate is hard to come by, is this ture?

My stepson has 11" brakes on his '47 and it stops great. Much better thatn my '44 GPW w/ the standard brakes. I just picked up a '47 CJ-2A and will convert to 11" brakes. I know they are not as easy to find as they once were. I'm hoping someone will have a source for them and maybe some comments about the ease of installation. gary
