Default Dual disc along with fork upgrade

I’m riding on a 2018 iron 883 with many many modifications, but my front end is still stock after 20k miles. I also hate my front braking capabilities and I want to upgrade both at the same time possibly. I see a ton of posts for dual disc but none that really give what I need to buy exactly and I see wide glide front end conversions but what years are compatible? I just want to know if anybody knows a way of replacing the front end and adding dual disc at the same time. I’m thinking about a $2000 budget maximum. Thank you!

motorfish is an unknown quantity at this point

I posted the link to wide glide kit in another thread couple of days ago, so here it comes again.

It is complete front end, what you will need is a second caliper and line, and disc(s).
Was thinking of the conversion myself, just that covid complicated things at work pretty seriously, so might better wait.
