I have a truck that I am keeping original. It has the Huck brakes in pretty good shape. Stopping power is not up to the needs of today. I have installed a dual master cylinder which is working fine, but doesn't really improve the stopping capability What are the options to keep the original wheels and significantly improve stopping capability?

I would suggest a minimum of front disk brakes. There are some reasonably priced bolt up kits out there.

I agree with Mick, I know you said you wanted to keep it stock, but times, driving conditions have changed I put disc's on my 51 don't regret it for a minute. Big help.

Yes depending on what kit you buy. I have to run 17" wheels minimum but I'm running 13" disk.

I have a 49 with 11in disc and wildwood 4 piston calipers however, I also run Foose custom wheels so be careful on the wheels you choose as the custom will not work with larger calipers. I recommend a 4 piston caliper on those new disc for slowing the lead sled down a bit.

I'm running Wilwood also. 13" disk 4 piston rear and 6 piston front. Nickle plated. They were pricey and I had to have custom spindles made.
