Rear disk conversion

Is there a junk yard solution for rear disk conversion on a drum Dana 44? I have a buddy with a TJ w/44 who is also interested. Everybody would like disc all the way around especially if it was junk yard available.

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.

If you want a bolt on caliper bracket TSM Mfg Co
out of Castle Rock CO makes a bolt on bracket for the D44.
As Bill noted in his writeup an MC change will probably be in order.
I went with yj pb booster and an MC from a mercury grand marque (sp)
It puts the break lines on the engine side of the MC so it will be close to the TBI intake. A better choice would probably be the cj booster with the Corvette mc which will keep the lines on thier stock side.
I had to tweak the stock cj ebrake setup at the load balancer (not the right term)
where the 1 line splits into the left and right line. It would want to put more tension on one side than the other. I put in a piece of round stock for the balancer to pivot on and it has seamed to work well.
