Question Drum to Disc brake conversion using Explorer disc brakes

I am interest in converting the rear drum brakes to disc brakes on my '82 F150 with a 9" inch rear.

I have heard that it is possible to use the rear disc brake set up from a Ford Explorer.

Has anyone done this or aware of this and what is involved?

Thank You in advance.
