Question TSM D60FF rear disc brake kit

Needing to know whether I can gather the parts or do I need to just buy a kit. Went to TSM site & not sure if all is included. Anybody want to comment about a disc brake conversion for this?

Never seen a kit, but the newer Ford vans(E250) have a FFD60 out back, with disc brakes, try them for parts....

Here is the cheap way to do it, it's been awhile. Go to your Jeep/GM friend, get the backing plate and caliper. Go to Auto Zone and buy a GM 8 lug rotor. Then all you have to do is re-drill the backing plate for the 4 holes and I think you may need a 1/4" spacer, not sure. Bolt on and your done. The 14 bolt is a little harder you need to make a ~1 1/2" spacer. Also I think we redrilled the hub to take the 9/16 studs.

The newer ford vans will have a 61 SU in them. No problem if you didn't buy a locker, or you just use the outer setup. The pinion is off set different. However you can use 60 stuff in them. The offset is the same as stepping up to the series 4 D60 carrier.

Just use Rotor, Caliper, and mounting bracket from a front D44 . Weld in the five holes on the bracket and redrill four holes to bolt up to where your rear backing plate used to be. Pound out the studs from the drum and hub. Reuse hub pound studs through rotor and hub. And assemble. Shorten brake lines use front brake lines(which are now rear) Then add an adjustable proportioning valve.
And then sit back and say "da*n that was easy.

Use early 80 Ford 3/4 rotors and some weld on Chevy style brackets. The calipers are nost any 1/2 chevy truck, blazer, or Eldorado if you want the e-brake. The rotors are less than $100 for the pair, brackets are $25-40, and the claipers are $45 with pads.
