Default XJ D44 brake swap
Hey Gang,
Been lurking for a while, reading all the great posts everyone has, have not been able to make a run due to scheduling issues. I have seen an increase in XJ related posts do I was thinking this might be a good time to mention this. So I am in the process of gathering what I need for the D44 rear brake swap. I am going to use the explorer brakes from a 8.8 axle. My question is while I am confident in the process has anyone here actually done it? Having someone to bounce questions and such off of would be great! And as usual no project wont be without difficulty modifiers so any and all resources would be appreciated! Thank s guys!

Jason
