    WJ brake conversion for TJ

    Can anyone give me a rundown on what is needed for this? or maybe a link to a page that explains it? Just trying to get a new wishlist together. :yay:

    No, my ABS has been acting up lately so I've been running without the fuse. Everything works fine and I get a shiny new light in my dash to boot.:yay:

    why would i post in here?... i don't have a frame

    anyways... Chris_L hit the nail on the head as far as parts needed. For my application (XJ) I also had to get TJ hub/bearings, as the XJ ones wouldn't work correctly. But Brian already has those

    ORGS Mfg. makes the .25" spacer that needs welded to the WJ knuckles to line everything up correctly.

    I was able to get by without using WJ steering. If I make a hard left turn, the pass. side knuckle contacts the steering stabilizer mount, but that's the only adverse effect i've noticed. To use WJ steering, you'll also have to relocate the sway bar mounts and steering stabilizer mounts.

    For best effect, go ahead and install a WJ booster and master cylinder. You don't still want ABS, do you? I'm not sure if the WJ booster/master will cooperate with the TJ ABS equipment.

    I got most of my parts from car-part.com for some great prices ($90 for both knuckles, for example) The rest of the parts, Chris_L wanted out of his garage

    Parts list:
    WJ knuckles
    WJ calipers
    extended brake lines
    CJ rotors for 5.5 bolt pattern or WJ rotors drilled for both bolt patterns {for future hub conversion upgrade}
    .25 spacer welded to knuckle
    TJ shafts
    new ball joints {while you have it apart}
    WJ tie rod and tre's and draglink

    I am fairly sure that the currie steering will not work

    actually rick, the shock "thingy" has to do with relocating the upper mounts to the frame. The mod today was to make my now rancho looking OMEs last until I can get it done.

    oh yeah, that. I talked to Chuck alittle about it this weekend. He would be that man to post a list, or maybe MJR if he visits here again. It's fairly invloved.
