    <font color=blue>I've seen this on Samuris, theres a local company http://www.spidertrax.com that makes them for use with they're disk conversion. I want to do something similar since I will be cahnging to rear disks very soon, and I would like to use front calipers and get my p-brake cables out of the way. TSM makes a pinion-mounted p-brake for ford 9" rears, so would it be possible to bolt the rotor to the t-case side of the driveshaft and make a caliper mount? Anyone else considering this?</font color=blue>

    I have seen this setup on a Toyota before and really like it, I will check around a little, if anyone makes it I will test it.

    Mabe ìt`s possible to do the same thing like a RV (motorhome) on the big ones thier is a drum brake in the drive line just behind the transmission you could use it as a park brake.

    The TSM company that makes disk brake converisons kits USED to make this to fit an NP205. I looked about a year ago and it was not listed anymore. Maybe you'd give them a call.
