Drum To Disc Brake Conversion 68 Cj5

Looking for a conversion kit to change my front brakes from drum to disc. Found plenty out there for the 1970 with the dana 30 but can't seem to locate a kit identified for the Dana 27. Will the Dana 30 kit fit the 27?

Thanks for your time folks.

1970 is a D27, not D30. Passenger side D30 differential was used from '72 through '86, with disc brakes added in '77 and changes to the hub made around 1980ish. The D27 uses a 6 bolt pattern for the backing plate that is the same as the '77-'78ish 6 bolt CJ caliper bracket. After that, they used a 2 bolt bracket.

You could do the Chevy swap:

EDIT: Looks like we were typing at the same time.
