Arrow Dana 44 Rear Disc Brake conversion

Is there an easy way to put disc brakes on my 2000 TJ with factory d44 ?

I see the kits in quadratec but way to exoensive. There's got to be an easier way.

I have all the parts you want. I took it off of my ZJ D44A when I put in a 8.8. I have the backing plates, calliper brackets, and some hardware. You would just need rotors pads and calipers.

you will need a retaining plate. There is a dealer part number for one. I don't have it off hand but a quick google will get it for you. You may want to get a ZJ proportioning valve (or do the valve bypass by pulling the center out, I did that and works fine). Parking brake lines will either need a U-clap or get new lines. I did the new lines route. You can always leave the parking brakes off if you want as well.

You will also need longer bolts/studs for the retaining plate as well as wheel studs if you use aluminum wheels.

...I googled for you....
