I was able to get most of the information from the thread that was created by DD2015RT. Very helpful thread and gave a good summary of everything. I tried to revive that post but wasn't getting any hits.

Can someone tell me if the the below list is everything needed in order to do the conversion? Can you also confirm that this would fit a 2016 R/T? All the Durango's that I've seen with the conversion are 2014-2015 unless I'm mistaken.

Here is the link to the thread where I was able to pull a lot of helpful info:

That is the correct numbers for the 2016 as well. The hardware kits aren't needed if you are buying reconditioned calipers, but the crossover lines didn't come with my calipers from Rock Auto, I had to make them myself.

My plan was to buy new calipers so I'm assuming that I'll need the kit then. My apologies if this is a stupid question but what do you mean by crossover lines? I'm clueless when it comes to this. Can you reuse the stock brake lines or do I need to upgrade those as well?

I believe new calipers also come with the hardware as well, just check with the supplier. Your stock calipers have pistons on the same side as the brake line. Brembos have pistons on both sides of the rotors, so a crossover line has to supply the fluid to the outside pistons. I would also suggest replacing the stock brake lines with SS upgrade.

Thanks. Do you have any recommendations for SS brake lines?

No they do not. You said you were buying new, not reconditioned calipers, the crossover lines are hard piped and come with the new calipers.

Bummer, those are good looking wheels - what are they ?
Yeah, I really liked these. I had not plans on getting rid of them. They fit over the Jeep SRT's so I thought they'd fit over on the Durango when I bought them. i always knew that I was doing this upgrade.
