Guys,
I recently I stumbled upon a website that was talking about doing a cherokee rear disk brake swap on the TJ. swapping out the rear drums to the disks. Has anyone done this ?

I've heard that you wont really feel a dramatic difference as some might think when switching from drums to discs in the rear. The drums work fine, if anything replace the front with nice rotors and pads with something like EBC Brakes. More noticable and better braking.

If you want disc brakes on the rear why not find a 2004 or newer Rubicon and change the complete rear end to the dana 44? It is not worth just changing the brakes in my opinion.
