Q&A Vlog: Jeep CJ2A Full-Floating Wheel Hub & Disc Brake Conversion 

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.

Vintage CJ2A is the first Jeep civilian model, introduced as WWII ended.

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.)
