Can't say I have ever had problems with the rear drum brakes in all reality though. Would like to do this but just seems out of reach...arg!

An LKQ U-pull-it yard, not to far from me, said they sell the brakets for $50 a pair, when they have them. It may be beneficial to roll up your sleves and go junk yarding. Calipers are $15 to $25 a pair. I wouldn't reuse rotors unless they are rust free. Also,new lines aren't very expensive unless you go braided SS.

If there were any junk yards around me I'd totally check it out. Unfortunately there aren't.. too many people buy new cars all the time here that junk yards aren't a Up in PA by my parents there are a ton but that's too hard to go back and forth.

For a DD I don't think I ever needed more brakes than what the ranger has by default. It would just be nice to have all discs/rotors but that's ok. I haven't run into a problem with the rear drums and they are easy enough to change/replace super cheap as well.
