I'm in the middle (not really in the middle, more like the beginning) of swapping out my four drum brakes for four disc brakes. Anyway how do I pull the axles out on the rear. I know it's a dumb question but I need a little help.

Oh, my jeep "eyeball" is a 76 Cherokee NT, dana 44 f/r, chopped top, fullcage, 6" Rusty lift, 35" BFG, BW 1305 th400, 258

Hi Jim,
Your Jeep being a 76 should have disc up front from the factory.
If your swapping axles in the rear.
You first jack up the body untill the tires just leave the ground then put some jack stands under the frame. SAFETY FIRST. Then remove the tires, rear drive shaft, brake line, shocks, and emergency brake lines. Unhook vent line. Unbolt Ubolts then unbolt the rear springs from the shackle and roll the rear out. Install in reverse.
Jack up the car from the axle and support it under the axle with jack stands.
If your wanting to pull the axle shafts then unbolt the 4 bolts on the axle flange. Take the drun off and you can find each bolt by rotating the shaft. Once you have all 4 bolts off it will should just pop out or off. You might need a little help with a mallet.

I thought 76 cherokees had standard front disc too but I have been told it was only standard on wagoneers and was an option on cherokees and J10

Remove drum. Turn axle shaft look through hole. You will see bolt head for the backing plate there are 4 bolts per side. You will need a slide hammer. Once un bolted connect the slide hammer to the wheel studs and give it a few big yanks. And wham it is out. Same on the other side.
