Northeast Kustoms makes it. Its a new rotor and capliper bracket thats machines to fit the ranger spindle and use the 17 inch mustang cobra rotors and cobra caliper. its def worth the $500 imo. 239 for the kit if i believe plus ur responsible for getting the calipers and rotors

13 inch, not 17 bud. Also, any of you tried bolting up TC brackets and calipers to the rear of your ranger axle?? I need to know becuase i have 2 of them laying around.
