Not sure where to post this.....?

I checked out all of the categories and didn't see brakes. I want 4 wheel disc brakes with the smallest amount of cash and effort possible. I am converting a DJ-5F to 4 wheel drive. I will probably spend the next 5 years making this thing exactly what I want, but for now I just want 4 discs stopping this can. There has to be an easy, cheap, weekend job that someone has found, I just can't find them. Thanks for the help, links, and criticism.

You have to pick one, easy or cheap. Use the Google and do your research. Dana 30 disk conversions depending on which D30 you have are well known and well written about. I would look for a disk equipped D30 with the axle width you want/need. You have a Postal, so it should have a Postal Dana 44 rear that is about 1.5" wider than narrow track axles. There are some D44 disk set-ups that can be adapted, and/or pieced together. I suppose you could also buy a kit with everything you need. As already suggested, a Ford 8.8 should fit nicely.
