Rear Disc brake conversion for 2001 1500

Does anybody know if you can use the rear disc brakes off of a 3rd gen for a 2nd gen? Wanted to know if they would bolt up, or what it would take to convert it over from drums!
Thanks,Philip!

I don't know about that, I have been wondering about that myself. I do know you can get a rear disc brake conversion from SSBC.

good luck man.

There are a couple disc conversions from SSBC. One is a cast conversion for less than $1K, and one is an extreme kit with aluminum calipers and rotors for well over $2K. You could also troll junkyards for an '00 or '01 rear that already has disk brakes.
If you're just looking for more stopping power for the rear it can be had very cheap as outlined here.
