    USMC TJ rear disc conversion

    I searched, no go. It may have been on another forum.

    I have seen a list of factory parts from a WK? that would allow anyone to convert a d35/44 to rear discs

    I swore I copied it for later use but it may have been in my last computer. anyone have this parts list? I would rather use over the shelf parts then something from tera ect

    I recently converted my TJ to rear discs using Rubicon or Unlimited parts.

    Colo Jeeper says IT ALL!!!!!!

    Hey guys this is a NEAR FREEBIE, its junk yard stuff and labor is common hand tools, skip anything other than a TJ flip

    All Rubicons have disk brakes, disk brakes became a option in '03 and std equip in '04 IIRC. Run do not walk to your nearest Pick-A-Part...or drive by REAL slow and the disks will just appear on your rear axle...

    Thanks for that I now have the info saved. I did not realize the 44 to 35 were that different, I guess I wont do this untill the rear axle shows up

    The difference is the bolt pattern on the housing ends and that the D35 uses c-clips and the D44 uses bearing retainers.
