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

Jeep Wrangler YJ Drum to Disc Conversion Kits by SSBC at Morris 4x4 Center

700 doesnt seem that bad what do you guys think?

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

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.

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.
