i'm trying to find a rear disc conversion for my cherokee, i can find a kit to fit the dyna 35 but i have a factory dyna 44 rear, does anyone know where to get one, or does the 35 have the same bolt pattern as the 44 so i can just use the 35 kit? just wanna avoid micky mousing something together.

id look into a newer explorer 8.8 with discs on it allready, mount new spring perches and your done, plus the explorer 8.8 is 31spline and a hell of a lot drtonger than the dana 35 or 44 even

If its 6 lug then its easy
Front rotors off of a 95 chev half ton, and D44 calipers.

I don't understand why people are going with rear discs??? Mind you I've got a D44 rear with 10"x2.5" brake pads... so maybe that makes a difference, otherwise, my breaks work awsome! I can lock up my 33's in a heart beat!

rear discs give you better braking power, better brake control, and the big one for us that really use our 4x4s no dirt/mud maintanence

At street speeds 30-50 kms.My jeep stops about a 100 ft.sooner,Offroad forget about it,there is not even a comparison.There's nothing quite like going through a water trap or mud hole and "hoping" your drum brakes are gonna grab enough before you start heading down a hill.

are you for real?

comparing drums too disks?????????

whens the last time you had ur truck buried in mud or drove across rocker deep rivers...my 14 bolt ( one ton) has twice the brake pad than urs.. i can bolt on a d44 ( half ton) disk conversion and get twice the stopping power and performance...and an e brake that actually works....
