Parts stores ask if my Jeep has 10" brakes or 11" brakes. What do I measure to determine the size?

Take off a drum and measure the inner diameter.

Thanx for the tip. When I went to buy a cylinder kit for the front brake caliper, the site asked if the Jeep had 10" or 11" brakes. Hopefully I can assume that if the rear brake drum is 10" then the front brakes are also 10". Right?

I'm still trying to figure how to navigate this site. I had another question but please disregard. I'll save it for another time.

I just had the same issue on the rear drum on my 78 cj7. As a side note my drum had stamped on the front outside rim of the drum max 11.060" which was an obvious indication to 11 drums. After measuring thats what I had 11" drums.

This is true, but most of the time there's way too much rust to read the numbers.
