E-Brake hookup on Disc brakes

Recently got a D-44 rear for the jeep and it has disc brake conversion the levers for the e-brake are on the calipers. How do I hook these up to the current e-brake setup (stock) do I need to purchase anything special to do it?

actually you could probably hook up something fancy where the E-Brake had its own Master cylinder on it, but then it wouldn't tie into the existing setup very well I.E. you would only have front brakes from the pedal and back brakes from the E-Brake pedal....

doesn't sound fun to me... my $0.02 worth would be just put some wedges behind and in front of the wheels...

This would be a possible mod, but it would be very time consuming....

if the calipers are the 80's caddy seville flavor like mine, I got a universal kit from lokar that worked great with only minor fab work on the factory YJ bracket to run the cables. I also recommend setting up the calipers with the rear inboard pad removed. I tried ratcheting the e brake lever with the inboard pad in place and the new pad would not allow enough movement to click to the next position on the lincoln rotors. where did you get the kit from?

another note I should mention is the seville calipers drained my rear resivoir on the m/c so I had to swap it out
