12" Brakes on a Stock 2wd Edge?

I need to replace my entire braking system, and I plan on eventually (next year or so) converting to 4x4, so I'm wondering if I could possibly go ahead and throw some 12" rotors on my stock 2wd Edge?

If I can, will I need any brackets, etc. to do this??

I went to O'Reillys tonight and they are ordering a 2wd edge rotor for me to look at and I'll go check it out on my way home tomorow night. I was probably right, I just have to see for myself...

The 11.28" rotor and hub is one piece on the 2WD Edge. 4x4's with 12" brakes use a rotor that is separate from the hub/bearing assembly.
