05-06 front brake calipers on an 04

I would like to hear from the folks that have replaced the stock front caliper on an 04 with the 05-06 caliper.

What did it take to do this swap?

Thanks.

I was waiting to see if anyone has done this... ive been looking in to this. I have crossed the knuckle part numbers between the 04 to 05- 06 and there the same. Also the rotors are the same for all years 04-06 so it looks to be just a direct bolt on just remove the caliper and braket on the 04 and pop on a 05 caliper well i know its not a for sure but i will know in a month or two

I read on here somewhere that it was a waste of time and money
Seems the 04's actually work better for some reason

(just had to add my .02 )
now we can watch everyone come out to dispute me

personally,I just like the looks of the 04's WAAAAY better

i think they are trying to get the 04's on the 05/06 trucks so they can run the bogart 18's Jack is having built

I have read all the reviews and all ive seen said they stop the same very minimal diffrence if any. So i would be doing it for looks.. If i find they do fit i will be willing to trade for the 05-06 calipers. I have a set of low milage ones in perfect condition just to throw that out there

I have yet to do it but I think I was told it is easier to change the pads on the 05/06...

I have done the swap. It's a direct bolt up. Remove the 04 caliper and bracket and just bolt on the 05-06 caliper. 04 brake lines are different than the 05-06. your 04 lines will work but the steel end at the caliper will need to be bent a little.

I cant say for sure that braking performance improved because I switched pads at the same time(Zechausen)
Pad changes are easier on 05-06's

Good info,I'm thinking the '05-'06 calipers are better then the '04's other wise why did Dodge upgrade them??? I think they must have upgraded them for the weight factor on the QC's and just put them on the RC's too?
