5.0 Great kit for XJ Dana44

Installed on a 1989 Dana44 from an XJ. Simple install. Great kit. I did not need to change the master cylinder or modify the proportioning valve. Big difference in stopping power for my XJ on 35’s

5.0 Very nice kit, great price

This is a very nice kit to install disc brakes onto the rear of your Jeep. The Jeep I put these on is a 2001 Wrangler with the factory optional D44. The install was straight forward and went very quick. It came with braided flexible hoses which was nice. The calipers also have a very nice looking finish and the rotors were slotted. There are some things to keep in mind though. First is that you will need to press the bearings off the axle shafts to install a required spacer. It is not recommended to reuse the bearing lock collar so you will need to buy new bearing sets because I don't believe there is a way to get it separately. With the C clip style axles I don't believe this is an issue. Second is that the brake hose brackets are to be welded to the axle. No sweat if you have a welder of course but if you don't I don't know what you will do to attach the bracket. It would have been nice if the brackets could be attached with some hose clamps at least temporarily. That way you could safely drive it to a shop to have the brackets welded. Any muffler shop could do it quickly and inexpensively I'm sure. Finally 15 inch wheels are a very tight fit. The stock steel wheels wouldn't fit at all and my 15" Ecco wheels rubbed very slightly. I ground the calipers slightly for clearance and they now fit nicely but there would have been no way to get these to work with the factory steel wheels. If you can run 16 inch or larger wheels that would be best. Also don't forget to add in the cost of new parking brake cables. The Teraflex cables are $45 each but some OEM cables from a Grand or a Rubicon may do the trick for less. Over all a very nice complete kit.

Q: I read that it won’t fit with 15” stock Cherokee wheels. Is this correct? I have a 2000 Cherokee with a ‘90 something Chrysler 8.25 swapped in. Will it work with 15” wheels or will I need to get 16” wheels to make it work? Answer this question

A: I just did this Conversion on my Chrysler 8.25   and I was able to keep my 15” wheels with the new disk breaks.

A: I just installed this on my 01 cherokee with 8.25 axle and stock 5 spoke 15" rims and there's about an inch from caliper to rim but I am also running 1.25 wheel spacers already

Q: I have a g2 rock jock 60 for my yj. Is there a rear disc conversion or do these fit. Answer this question

A: The G/296-2049-DB will fit the G2 Rock Jock 60. The bearing retainer plate spacer ring can be notched and put on the axle to provide preload. Other wise new axle bearings and seals will have to be used such as 2 each D/S565903, 2 each D/S36797 and 2 each D/S35239.

Q: I have this kit and I'm looking for replacement pads and rotors. Does G2 sell a kit? What size do I need? Answer this question

A: The slotted rotors are PAL126.65052FWSL and PSL126.65052FWSR. The brake pads are PSL104.06670. Non slotted rotors are 2 each of TER8622. You may need to call into our sales team to purchase. I don't believe these are on our sites.

Q: Any chance this will install on D44 out of MJ (year model unclear)? I guess it is the same axle as D44 out of XJ 1987-91. It had those bigger brake drums originally, if it helps. Answer this question

A: The G/296-2049DB will not fit the MJ or XJ Dana 44 rear axle. The TER4354410 rear disc brake conversion will. Fit the MJ and XJ vehicles with the Dana 44. Emergency brake cables are sold separately.
