Factory Options

The Dana 30 from a CJ makes good swap material for '45-'71 CJs because parts are much easier to find, it has open knuckles, and disk brakes where a factory option.

If you are looking for parts for a Dana 30, Scouts used Dana 30s for a while in the early 70s. Hubs and brake hubs from these vehicles can be used on Jeep Dana 30s. This version used the larger rotor used in early Jeep Dana 30s with the "big brakes". It would be a lot of work for the gain to swap a Scout II Dana 30 into a Jeep.
