In this HD video Q&A vlog, Moses Ludel responds to the owner of a 1947 Jeep CJ2A who wants a disc brake conversion and other upgrades. The discussion includes disc brake options, caliper brackets, drum brake upgrades and other approaches for upgrading brakes on the early Jeep CJ 4×4 chassis.
These prized CJ2A models are early production, built at the close of WWII for the anticipated and soon viable civilian market. Restoration versus modification has been a time-honored owner choice with these utility and trail-suited vintage Willys Jeep 4×4 models. (Michael Myers Collection, photos courtesy of Michael Myers.)
