Any suggestions on rotors, calipers, etc after disc conversion

Isn't that kit like 600 bones? I swapped my complete 8.8 in for less than that....
$200 axle
$100 brackets
$100 soft brake lines instead of bending hard lines (because I'm lazy)
$50 u joint adapter
Reused rotors and new pads for cheap at Az. ..
Just throwing that idea out there.

I went with EBC rotors and pads on all four wheels when I put in a Ford 8.8. They are amazing.
I originally had plans to go with a wj big brake setup, but that's been de-prioritized after getting the ebc.

I have DBA ceramic pads and T3 4000 series rotors front and rear ordered from Summit Racing for my XJ with rear ZJ disks. These are great performing brakes but they are pricey.
