Just some things to consider about drum brakes. I'd be willing to bet you'll be blowing out those old wheel cylinders the first time you push on the pedal with the new power assist brakes. Additionally, you can't "shoe slap" drums without having them turned and I'm betting those old drums are beyond spec. You can get them measured to see for sure. Start adding up the cost of front wheel cyls, shoes, drums, spring combi kits and it may well exceede the time & money you're looking at for an outer / disc swap.
*sigh* good point. gonna be alot harder to find a CJ i figure at a junk yard though.
