    1979 Jeep CJ7, 258, TH350, NP208
    Howell fuel injection, header, HEI distributor, TH350, NP208, SOA lift with YJ springs in the front & GW springs in the Rear. AMC20 with G2 1 piece chromos trussed, Dana 30 with G2 chromos and 760x ujoints and MM Stainless Hubs, Geared 4.56. Tom Woods shafts, Metal cloaks, Caged, 37" Toyo MTs.
    The CJ7 came with an AMC 20 rear end. It never came with Disk brakes and there are no junk yard swaps. Look at https://www.summitracing.com/search/year/1985/make/jeep/model/cj7?keyword=rear disk brake conversion , https://www.quadratec.com/search/drum to disc , https://www.morris4x4center.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=drum to disc , and https://www.4wheelparts.com/s/_/?Ntt=drum+to+disc&_requestid=24839&skuSelectedTab=true. Remember that you will also need to get a new master cylinder designed for 4 wheel disc brakes. They don't come in any kits that I have seen.
