Switching to 6-bolt hubs

I see a lot of talk (most recently by bigwalton in another thread here) about switching to the stronger 6-bolt hub design. What's involved in this swap? I saw a couple sets when I was at a salvage yard the other day, and I'm wondering if it's something I should consider doing.

I've been looking at this too. From what I can tell you have 2 different caliper designs, but the later style calipers AND the 6 bolt hub/rotor assemblys were used in 79 and 80 so you get yourself a set of 79-80 hubs w or without rotors and just swap em...

I don't think that you have to find ones off of a CJ, just similar spindle/rotor setup. I know (or should I say hope) that ones from a Scout will work. I picked up a set that has the IH logo from a Scout. I'll be putting them on in the very near future.
