drum to disc conversion

anyone ever done or heard of this? granted most of the stopping power is already handled by the front discs, i just can't stand drum brakes!

I can't remember the first year, but I know my 1996 GC laredo came with rear discs, and I believe all jeeps that year started to come standard with 4 wheel discs. You should be able to pick up new rotors and calipers at a auto store and get the rest at a auto salvage yard.

For everyone else to help you even more you may want to tell them what year of GC you have.

I did the disk swap on mine.. Found a 98 in the bone yard and pulled them off and they just bolted right to mine.. The only thing I had to change was the emergency brake cables..

Very simple...

Just another soccer moms Grocery getter....
