I've been wondering the same thing only I want to put AC brakes on my 14. It has hasslers on it now and it doesn't appear that the AC's will go on with them in place. Is it too much to ask for both??

I've got the pancake Hasslers and AC brakes on one of my pickups. There is just enough room. I'm told you can't do it with the Beehive hassslers.

Jack I thought that the Hassler's could not be used on the rear with Rocky's.

They fit with small drum Bauer or AC brakes. No way to use Hasslers with any style reproduction Rocky Mountain brakes.

Beehive Hassler over AC style brakes on small drum rear axle. Pancake would fit similar.

Larry Smith posted this photo of original Rocky Mtn. Brakes, on small drum axle, the shock I believe is a Pancake Hassler, by the look of the perch arm.

But as Royce posted, the new reproduction Rocky Mtn brakes use a more or less top mounted adjustment for band and lever, different arm mounting castings to the backing plate, and smaller 'large drum' than original, that any Hassler shock parts would interfere is likely.
