Big/powerful brakes for 15" wheels?

What brakes do you know of that would fit with 15" wheels. It would be on a D44 front axle if that matters. Yes I know about the WJ calipers but I was just wondering if I had any other choices. And I don't care if it isn't bolt on, I'm ready to fab up anything needed.
What pickup trucks do have 15" wheels?

If you're using the Ford backing plate a popular swap with Early Broncos is to switch to a mid/late 70s (76 works I think) Tbird caliper. The piston is 3-3/32" in diameter and uses the same brake pad. You need to get some new brake hose hardware because the banjo is a different size and thread.

Im not gonna tell you they are "badass brakes", but the ScoutII disc brakes from a d44 or "d30" fit 15inch wheels.
