Willys CJ5 1955 Brake upgrade

Does anyone have advice on upgrading front brakes? I am thinking on replacing the 9inch drums with 11inch?

Here is what you need to check out.

Early CJ 11″ Drum Swap « Earlycj5.com

I would go with this...all new parts....http://www.r-p4wd.com/Just scroll down after clicking on Brakes. There is a kit for all new complete drums. Well worth the price for new brakes when you need to stop!!

I upgraded the front brakes on my CJ by swapping out the front Dana 27A to a Dana 30 with disc brakes.
