    Hey. I'm into a frame-off restro of a 67 CJ5, V6. Basically stock with 9" brakes. Want to upgrade to dual master cylinder and thought why not go disc front and 9" drum rear.
    So keeping the brake pedal in floor, is there a kit or parts listing beginning with master, line size/length, proportioning valve, lines, hoses, mounts, rotors and calipers out there? I'd rather have all the pieces knowing the end product will work and be safe than make a 1000 trips to NAPA.

    I added disc brakes to my 71' years back. Pay close attention to the master cylinder plumbing on the brake lines.

    Why not disc fronts and 11" self adjusting brakes on the rear?

    The tracker brakes are cheaper then sourcing 11" bendix brakes now.
