Rear disc on a YJ

Has anyone put disc brakes on the back of your YJ. I dont mean the $700.00 set sold by SSB. Any mods to a doner setup from another vehicle, or what ever.

Re: Rear disc on a YJ

I put a Ford 9" from a 72 Bronco in the rear of my jeep and then upgraded from drum brakes to disc. I can not remember exactly what parts I used for the conversion. I think it was a Ford f-150 rotor and a set of GM calipers. I'll take a look at my notes when I get home and let you know the exact parts. I know we had some problems with this conversion and it took us awhile to get all the right parts.
