Got her on the road! Still a long road ahead but ive dreamed of getting to this part of the build for so long and im glad to have finally made it happen. The truck rides great and slides great too. Took it on a few test runs around the neighborhood but i still got to get the bed on it and fix up some last details.

Super dope brotha! I've done the IRS mod on mine too but I'm still under construction and about to start hook in vitals up again. Did yours have the load sensitive proprtioning valve on the rear brakes stock? Idk what year or if only king cabs had em. My question is also, if you had it did you delete it or keep it when u plumbed the rear discs in? I haven't decided if I'm keeping mine and adding an adjuster to it or just deleting it... your experience with it would b greatly appreciated

Thank you man, and yes mine did have the load sensing proportioning valve. If I understand it correctly the load proportion valve only comes into play when there is a load present so I just deleted it and the truck brakes fine without one. Someone should totally correct me if i'm wrong but I just went for it and it seems to work fine.

That's correct. The LSV is there to distribute more of the braking force to the rear brakes when it detects a load in the bed. I don't know if there is any rhyme or reason to which trucks have them and which ones don't, but I think it was only on 2WD trucks, and not all of them. My 1990 2WD does not have one and I haven't noticed any deficiencies in the braking with a load in the bed outside of what you'd normally expect.
