What year did stock CJ start having Disk brakes

I have a 1960 CJ5 I have recently bought a complete front rear axle set up. The front axle is a passenger side deferential. When I bought the Jeep, The jeep had a passenger side deferential danna 30 in it. The pinion bearing gave out causing a bunch of damage. So instead of rebuilding the axle I went out and bought another complete set of axles. everything matched up on the front axle beside the fact it had disk breaks instead of drum. I have installed the axle now underneath my jeep. I am trying to hook the break lines but the fitting on the rubber hose that goes in the caliber is different then the one that goes into the drum. My thought is I will just find out the year that they converted from drum to disc and i should be about to buy the hose and fitting set up from auto zone.

If I am wrong please correct me and help me get this old girl back out on the trail.
