Question yj drum to disc conversion?

i was wondering is doing a rear drum to disc brake conversion worth it?

If you go this wrought some day you will kill your self for putting that kind of cash into a Dana 35. You could put a 8.8 in with disc brakes for that much. But if you want to keep your axle and have disc brakes you can get the parts you need from a junk yard. I think some Grand Cherokees came with the 35 and disc brakes.

I used a homemade bracket, gm metric calipers, and 95 YJ front rotors when I did mine, think I have less than $200 in the conversion. There's some pics of my conversion here in my build thread http://www.wranglerforum.com/f8/time...ild-27750.html

Been driving on it now for several months, eventhough I haven't finished the thread and I really like it a lot better than the drums.
