Now what to do? I really am leaning towards the Ford 8.8 swap but availability is an issue since I'm stationed in Hawaii. FML!

Hate to send you off to another site but there is an avid Jeeper in your area who hangs on Jeep Forum Opihi59.

He can be of big help and guide you through the fix from local vendors or help out on the 8.8 find.

In your location it would be tough but there may be an 8.8 out there

I found a 8.8 on Craig's list with 3.73 gears but it has no brakes on it. However it is a disc brake axle.

That's about average for the cost of them in the states. And given the limited availability of them on the island, I would say that is a smoking good deal. And it already has been prepped by taking all of the ford brackets off. Currie has the parts you would need for the rear brakes, including the hard to find backing plates.

I just replaced all the braking parts on mine with parts from Currie, and the bill was around $400 for everything. That was new backing plates, rotors, calipers, e-brake shoes.

Are the caliper mounts part of the backing plates?

According to this picture yes they attach to the axle housing along with the rear brake dust shields.

Is this the kit I would need?
