87 YJ wheel pattern?

I thought I saw somewhere that the 87 YJs had a 5 on 5.5 wheel pattern. If so, can I convert my 93YJ to this bolt pattern using any of the 87 factory parts (if this proves cheaper than complete axle swaps I prefer to go this route right now). I am hoping by buying new axleshafts, rotors, drums, and possibly calipers, drum backing plates I can avoid an axle swap. My goal is to have the 5 on 5.5 pattern.

Sorry, all YJ's have a 5x4.5" bolt pattern.

Nope all YJ's(and TJ's) are 5 on 4 1/2. Only CJ and older are 5 on 5 1/2.

I wasn't sure, I was hoping! OK then, what's the cheapest way to get a 5 on 5.5 wheel pattern. I have a 76 '7 parts jeep but it's drum/drum and I want to keep discs up front.
