4 wheel disc brake conversion kit for my 81 cj7

I am looking to upgrade my 81 CJ7 brake system with a hydroboost conversion kit and would like to also upgrade to 4 wheel disc brakes. Does anyone have any suggestions on a 4 wheel disc brake conversion kit they had a good experience with? thanks

I used 300ZX calipers on the rear with Geo Tracker rotors and a bracket I had made locally. The pictures show brackets for two different Dana 44's but the machinist has a bracket set for the AMC 20 also. This setup has the advantage of not needing a new proportioning valve since the ZX caliper piston is so small. They also have a built in emergency brake feature which I used by making a piece to hold the e-brake cable from a small piece of pipe and some washers.
