jeeps&comics i was thinking about this, but like 1kooljeep said, kinda expensive. i'm gonna just throw an 8.8 back there when i get the chance/money.

Lancem 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

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.

1kooljeep 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 was wondering is doing a rear drum to disc brake conversion worth it?
