Yj Ford 9" advice

I have a big bearing 9 inch I plan on swapping in. It is set up with disc brakes they are 5x4.5 lug pitch. I want to swap them to 5x5.5 lug pitch and maintain the disc brakes on it. Looking for good routes. I would prefer to not have to mill down the axles to get the bronco stuff to fit. Didnt know if there was an easy route someone else has taken. Thanks.

Also was wondering if I could cut down the bearing retainer/ caliper mount and use a weld on caliper mount. Any advice helps.

Here's a couple of pictures of mine. You might be able to drill the axle flanges you have for the 5 x 5.5 pattern if they're big enough.

I have brakes off an 05 dodge 1500 pickup. I was planning on installing on my 9, now building another to run 35sp/ff. It will get the disks. The only thing that strays mr from making brackets and using any old caliper is the e-brake. The dodge uses integral drum for park brake (my junk was manual, and will be again) and has a decent size rotor and the appropriate bolt pattern. I will have to bore the mounting brackets slightly to fit axle tube if I remember correctly. The axle grabbed from necked down sharp at the end.

84 xj 350tbi, sm465, 203/205, 60/70. links and other junk.
what size sawzall blades does it take to fit 40's?
