    Guys, these are in fact Caliper "Covers". I looked into going through the Brake Caliper tear down, powder coat, reinstall and bleed. I ruled that out when I found these. These are aluminum, embossed with this logo I provided them, and powder coated two color. I paid to have them recreate the art work so all you guys need to do is call, pick your colors and install. It will literally take you longer to jack the tires off the ground then to put these on. Super easy, strong and I believe well made.

    Oh, here is a cut and paste from Rick Huddleston, Ranger Boats trailer engineer after asking him in a email what style calipers I had on my 2015 RangerTrail Trailer. You guys need this info for correct fit and for future brake parts for that matter.

    ""2010 to current trailers used (1997-2000 Kia Sephia) pads (organic) DB35 calipers
    The calipers did not come from this vehicle but they are very similar.""

    Very nice.

    I am with Roger. I painted mine red when I R&R'd all the calipers/spindles. They looked nice for a day. After that the brake dust coated them and the wheels and it looked just like it did before. I thought it was a good idea at the time?? I use my rig 2-4 times a week and would much rather fish than clean.
    I would prefer the calipers and wheels be all black then they look the same all the time. Nasty.....

    Wonder if they will work with my Z520ci all aluminum trailer. I would think the brakes would be the same.

    I bet they will. Just to be sure, call Rick Huddleston, Ranger's Trailer Engineer to verify 870-724-7273. They add a really cool look in the sunlight on the boat ramp

    Wow. I'm betting my older Z21 trailer is a different set of brakes.
