...Not necessarily. Stock TJs came with drum brakes. The guy just got an older 8.8. You could convert it to discs if you want or pick up another 8.8 with them. Used 8.8s are relatively inexpensive.Hi all. So I purchased a TJ in a box so to speak. The guy I got it from started a complete frame off resto. He put a ford 8.8 in it but it has drum brakes. Is that a bad thing? I have not picked it up yet as it is in a barn and I have to wait for the snow to melt to get a trailer to it.
One thing to note, though, is make sure the gearing is the same as the front.
I noticed in the pic that it is a right-side driver. Interesting. It will be a cool project. What engine are you putting in it?
My TJ is also down to the frame right now.
