Disc brake swap in a 3A Dana 44

Hey all,

Got an offset D44 that I would like to throw some discs on. Been searching the internet and have seen a few things here and there but nothing too solid.

Looking for the cheapest way to go about it, don't care about a parking brake.

I know of a company called Ruffstuff that makes a universal weld-on caliper mount. And I'm sure I could get away with some '73-'87 1/2 Chevy calipers and pads.

Curious on the rotors and studs though and how/ what those would actually attach to.

I'm used to converting full float axles and staking the rotor to the hub with the wheel studs. I've never converted a c-clip axle to disc brakes before.

I think the front Chevrolet calipers on the rear would be way too much braking force on the rear of a CJ-3A.

Do a google search for "CJ3A DIsc Brake GEO TRACKER". There's a guy that sells the brackets cheap. He also writes on some facebook sites. I don't remember his name but I think he's in Colorado. The conversion bolts on and uses 1994 GEO Tracker calipers and rotors.
  

People think I go out of my way to piss them off.
Trust me, It's not out of my way at all.

Keep us posted on your project, I'm considering the same thing as my 3A doesn't brake as well as I would like.
