Vented rotor swap

Solid toyota front axles come with solid (unvented) rotors

By buying rotors from '81 and up Toyota LC FJ40 and fj80

and calipers from an IFS Toyota (86+ P-up or 4Runner).

You can swap to vented rotors. Does not add any width to the axle.

Rear Disc brakes

Rear disc's are pretty straight forward on toyota rear axles.
These guys sell caliper brackets that bolt on

or you can build your own

Many ppl have done them diffrently using different parts, but most us chevy 1/2 ton front rotors and calipers from chevy S10 or if you want an ebrake Cadillac Eldorado.

Tons of info here:
