Nope. I hate disc brakes out back. All they do is rust up and seize out here.

Looks good though!

Now that exhaust on the other hand, that I'm envious of

If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.

Your gonna love it, escpecially if you do any offroading. I can stop on a steep incline with very little effort. I used to have to stand on the brakes to stop on a hill.

Why would they seize and rust in the back and not the front?

I love how all the people curse at their stock disk front/drum back power brakes for not stopping well. I drive on four wheel manual 11" non-finned drums and haven't hit anyone yet, and I've had to anchor this thing down hard a few times. Fade on stops faster than 60 MPH are the only complaint I have.

I loved the brakes on my friend's 1984 Grand Wagoneer. It stopped on a dime.

They suck. My friend's '71 Blazer stops much better than any of the FSJs I've driven, even though they both use GM hardware. I think the FSJs just weigh too much.

I would definitely go with hydroboost before a rear disc conversion though. I actually have all the hydroboost stuff sitting in boxes waiting to go on. Ugh!

Still very cool though, Ken!

And that's pure liquid coolness. There are a whole lot of U-joints in there. Looks like you can go 2, 4, or 6 wheel drive. I assume all drive axles are locked as well.

Yeah hydro boost is a huge improvement, mine feels like I'm gonna go through the windshield if I stop too hard.

If I didn't drive on the beach I would do the upgrade. Can't stand the screeechie screeechie of the sand binding up the rear brakes on new trucks on the beach. The hydroboost on the wag stops better than all vehicles in my sig, even hydroboosted diesel truck. Gonna replace rubber brake parts with SS though. I am envious though.

The larger front caliper swap should help quite a bit.

Yea, that is starting look better and better to me!

My other cars stop so well. Great even! My Bimmer which is a heavy car can stop on a dime. The Vette stops great in comparison to the Wagon. Although I am going to do a brake upgrade on it too. The Mini Cooper I drive (not in my sig) is an 07 and that little thing stops on microscopic dimes!!!
