CJ7 Disc Brake Conversion for REAR

I'm interested in doing a conversion to discs in the rear of my '85. AMC 20 back there right now, and for now I'm probably going to keep that axle. Is there any "do it yourself" means of doing the conversion without dropping $699 on the Quadratec kit? Can I use ZJ parts, etc? Or is there another logical donor for the 20?

There was a guy on Ebay selling a template for your local machine shop to cut out brackets for late model junk yard calipers.

There is supposed to be an easy way to use calipers from a 300Z with Isuzu Rodeo rotors (5X5.5 pattern). I have'nt researched it yet.

69 F150-Hot 302. Project street truck.
94 Land Cruiser-33" MTX's (my wife's)
03 GMC-DD work truck.

Time is fun when you're havin' flies.
