Default tj 44 rear disc conversion

i am swapping in a new front axle and the bolt pattern will be 5x5.5 which means i have to change up the rear bp so i need a way to convert the rear to discs and go to 5x5.5 i am getting the new rear shafts with dual bp's and im thinking ill have to find some rear rotors that are roughly the same size as stock tj fronts but with 5x5.5. any ideas?

or you could just upgrade the rear to TJ disc brakes and pickup some spacers for the rear with the different bolt pattern. which helps run the wider tires also.

I believe I might have an extra set of calipers and rotors for the rear

Go to the dealer and order the backing plates form a 03-06 Rubicon or call the local junk yards they might be able to get you them.

Then go to NAPA and order the rotors, calipers, pads, ect. Just redrill the rotors to 5 on 5.5 no point on spending the money on spacers if you need to buy new rims and you're buying dual pattern shafts.
