Just because disc brakes are claimed to be " maintenance free " doesn't mean they are 100% maintenance free. Check out this short video for a visual inspection tour of disc brakes on the truck and with the wheels on, just as you would have to inspect them.

I've thought about that myself. I haven't done enough research to know how disc brakes perform in mostly off road applications. It's amazing how filthy my truck gets in such a short amount of time. It would be nice to test it out!

Thank You Craig.... I wonder in your operation how the brakes would perform

Excellent video Bob. It's going to take a major upgrade for me to see disc brakes, but maybe some day.

Great Video Tutorial Bob. Everyone thinks Brakes are like a Ronco Rotisserie Grill. Not so-- You can not just "Set it and Forget It". Inspect those Brakes for wear and damage. I call it the 3 P's--- Proper Pretrip Please!!!
