brake rotor

I have a 76 cj7 with front disc brakes. I've done some research and front discs were an option in 76 but I cannot find them anywhere and if I do find them, the description is so vague that I can't tell if I'd be getting the right parts or not. Can anyone tell me if the the discs from later cj's are the same as this 76. Or does anyone know the width and diameter of a their disc so i can see if mine match. I guess if they're the same size they'll work whether they are correct or not.

76 and 77 rotors are thicker than later models and aren't interchangeable.

76-77's are 1 1/8" thick. 78-86's are 7/8" thick. Calipers are different as are mounts.

Some '78 CJ's had big brakes as well. They changed to the 7/8" rotor part-way through the year.
