I'd advise to just swap in a Ford 8.8. '96 on had rear discs and they're much stronger than the factory crp. Just a thought...

Re: Rear disc brake swap on YJ?

you have options here, What I'm looking is this:

Caddilac calipers with Ebrake built in to caliper ('76 eldorado or Early 80's Seville) about $95 each including Core charge or about $80 for a used pair on Ebay.

calipre mounts : http://www.aa-mfg.com/catalog/index.html part # aa-049-a

and the rotors, I'm hoping to use my D30 calipers.

do a search on this site for Rear disk brakes, there are some other options listed too.
