Skip it, go to the junk yard and get the rear disc brakes off of a early generation Liberty. Early Grand Cherokee rear disks work really well with minor modifications. I spent about $60 in parts from the junk yard, and about $250 for new pads, parking brake shoes, rotors, and calipers.

ZJ Grand Cherokee D35 and D44a disk brakes bolt on for an XJ D35.

Liberty 8.25 disk brakes are bolt on for an XJ 8.25.

Grand D35, and Ford Crown Vic disk brakes are easily adaptable to either the XJ D35 or the XJ 8.25.

I've got the G2 kit. I was worried about the quality of it at first, but not after I got it. Stoptech braided lines, powerslot rotors, and bendix loaded calipers I believe. Great parts and they all installed and worked flawlessly. Didn't have to worry about ripping apart an axle in the junkyard or getting old used parts. It was worth the money in my book.

When you need new rotors or pads, what do you tell the parts house for proper match for the new parts?

I don't own an XJ any longer, but I still think they are the best of all the Jeep products ever made. My XJ was my favorite vehicle in my 50+ years of driving.
So...I stick around and give advice.

Your front axle has used brake parts on it.

Get the necessary parts at the junkyard, buy new hoses, rotors, loaded calipers, and you have brand new brakes for less cost than any kit.

The only difference that really matters between those parts is the center hole for the bearing is larger on the Liberty stuff and the Liberty stuff is the same part number at the 03-up TJ rear discs.

Tim, what year liberty can the brakes come from? I have an 8.25 in my XJ that I am looking to upgrade.

G2 conversion kit 8.25 xj

Hi Willemcuracao,
I just received my rear disk conversion kit for my xj 8.25. Can you give me some info on the process and list the troubles you encountered. Do I have to remove my carrier?
Any info is appreciated.
Jeff

Can you give me some more info on crown vic brakes? Any modifications necessary, do things like the brake lines and ebrake cable connect to Jeep without any issues?

8.8's with disks are more plentiful around here than d35's/d44a's with disks, and I have yet to see an 8.25 with disks.

IIRC the Crown Vic brakes are a better fit for the XJ/MJ 44/non c-clip 35. The KJ Liberty rear discs are a direct swap for the 8.25, and the ZJ discs are supposed to be a direct swap for the c-clip 35
