3/4 Ton Brakes on a Chrysler 8.25?

Looking at disc brake conversions for D60s, can a similar method for disc brake conversion be done on an 8.25? In other words, is it possible to weld on caliper brackets and attach '75 Chevy 3/4 ton calipers?

Scroll to the bottom of this very page and also see the FAQ's ( http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/t...ks-tsbs-89273/ ) to read up on disk brakes.

KJ Liberty brakes bolt on the 8.25, and ZJ and Ford Crown Vic or 8.8 disks are easy to adapt.

Any of the above will be easier to install and are guaranteed to work with 15-16" rims.

I suppose as long as the caliper would fit in the wheel you could do this but you might have a hard time finding a rotor that is 5x4.5 that is big enough.
