Hmmm this is a new one to me. I have never heard of someone wanting to downgrade their brakes before. I am kind of dumbfounded.
I have to ask man. If you are running 4" lift spindles and 33 inch tires why are you downgrading your brakes? That isnt the smartest thing to do.Jeep Recovery Vehicle.

I dont know if you can bolt on the smaller rotors, but like the previous poster I dont think it would be smart to downsize the rotors. I wouldnt recommend it even if you were running stock tires and wheels.
If this is an attempt to fit smaller wheels you'd be better off not doing it.

X3 , you will really degrade your braking capacity since you have drums on the rear. That's why you have bigger front brakes, because of the drums.Adam
