There are two things that would definitively help. Stainless Steel brake lines, and slotted rotors, Powerslots or the like. I personally dont advocate slotted/drilled rotors, but you may go that way as well. Switching from the stock rubber lines to SS will net a bit of braking power by eliminating brake line swelling, and the slotted rotors will net lower rotor temperatures and eliminate gas layer fade. Its also nice to have ceramicfied brake pads as well, for longevity.

"MOby" The big white bio-burning 03 7.3 4x4. 6637, straight piped stock exhaust, and a new "secret" blend of Haul asBLEEPsing mods and upgrades. Suffice to say, its still not the fastest, but its quick enough to worry lots!
